    Keeping Your Safety In Mind

    We care about our brain tumor community and our top priority is the health and safety of our walkers, runners, staff and volunteers. As the Foundation prepares for the Race for Research, we are keeping a close eye on guidance statements issued from the CDC, and/or the city of Atlanta's Mayor's Office of Special Events regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the effect of the Delta variant as it pertains to outdoor events. Read more about our plans to ensure your safety at the event. Race participants, staff and volunteers will not be required to mask but have the option to do so at their own discretion.


    Start Line Etiquette

    We request all walkers (whether 5K or 1K) line up behind runners to help facilitate the start of the race and avoid collisions. Children and strollers are welcomed. However, if you bring a stroller we ask that you also start behind the runners.
