The City of Acworth and the Pro Wakeboard Tour invites the entire family out to Dallas Landing Park, on Saturday morning, May 21, 2011 for an exciting day of fun in the sun during the inaugural Acworth Get Fit 5K. The first annual event will feature racing for children, families and serious runners before crossing the finish line at the park’s beach, where the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour will host its action-packed festivities for everyone to enjoy.

“The Acworth Get Fit 5K is a fun way for the whole family to be active and spend the day together,” said James Albright, Director of Parks & Recreation for the City of Acworth. “It’s exercise and entertainment all rolled up into one family-size event.”

The race will kick off at 8 a.m. with a chip-timed 5K run through and around the park on a scenic, fast and well-shaded route. Runners with little ones can participate on the same course at 8:05 a.m. for the untimed 5K Stroller Roll. The final races of the day will be held at 9 a.m. for the Kids Fun Run.

Post-race festivities will be held at the beach section of Dallas Landing Park, featuring an award ceremony, music, children’s activities, a food buffet, a ticket to the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour and more.

Proceeds from the Acworth Get Fit 5K will benefit the Acworth Special Needs Group and Special Needs Baseball field.
