The Atlanta Half Marathon (ages 14 and up), organized by the Atlanta Track Club (ATC), is among the largest half marathons in the US. In its 38th running, the Atlanta Half Marathon has become a Thanksgiving tradition for thousands of people throughout the metro Atlanta area and beyond. Come run with them on Thursday, November 24!
The Half-Marathon starts at the mid-point of the Marathon, at Peachtree Road just north of the Clairmont Road intersection. It's within walking distance of the Chamblee MARTA station.
A word of caution to the runners - the streets aren't closed off for the race, although the intersections will be staffed to help in traffic control.
If you're going to be in Atlanta over Thanksgiving, make your way to Downtown for this Atlanta original. It's a great way to get out and about, and there are tons of holiday shopping specials throughout the city. So bring the family and enjoy everything Atlanta has to offer!
