Mom!!!!   Throw out some money....The Ice Cream Man is coming!


Can you remember being a kid playing outside, when from out of no where, that heavenly music would float through the air.  The shouts to mom to give some money, and then the race would be on.  Finding him in the neighborhood, and then chasing him down.  We're bringing all that excitement back!

On September 25, we know the Ice Cream man is going to be in Kennesaw, GA.  He's going to have a truck full of goodies, and all you have to do is catch him.  He's going to play his magical notes as he leads the 5K run, and then at the end, you'll get to step up and get a treat.

The course is a flat out & back on a parkway, so you'll run up one side, and back on the other.  Everyone will receive a Great Souvenir Race Shirt & Finisher Medal.  We'll be chip timing the entire thing, so we'll know who the fast ones are, and we'll be giving out Age Group Awards for the fastest runners in 5 year groups (10 & Under through 80+).  It's going to be an experience you'll never forget.
