super dad 5k

Valdosta Main Street is hosting its first ever Super Dad 5K run/walk on June 15, 2019. The race will begin at Georgia Beer Company at 8 a.m. Valdosta Main Street teamed up with A Course Line to host the event. The superhero-themed 5k will gives participants the opportunity to run with family & friends through the streets of downtown.

“This race is all about the men in our lives who have made a difference. Being a Dad is a title that is earned, not given! We all have those male influences in our life that have helped us to become who we are. This race is something fun you can do with someone or in honor of someone who has made a difference in your life,” said Rachel Thrasher, Main Street Coordinator.

In true Downtown Valdosta fashion, they always add a twist! Every racer will get a t-shirt and a free beer from Georgia Beer Co (21+) to celebrate crossing the finish line. Winners will be announced in every age category for males and females.

This race doesn’t require you to be an athlete, just someone that wants to get out and move a little. Run it or walk it we don’t care, just join in on the fun!
