    • Hi Stoph,

    • Thanks Shane for the comment. I sent an email to someone who works for the city of Acworth so they can fix the issue. For now, it would be best to call for more info – (770) 917-1234.

  1. If senior adults would like to participate, do they have to complete the 5k at one time, or can they spread it out over the month of November, as long as they complete the distance by the deadline?

  2. Is says we can’t register online. Registration on day of race? Do we have to come to Parks and Recreation to register?
    Thank you
