Georgia Urology FAST PACE Race
Cumming, GA - October 19, 2013 - Our course is set up by runners for runners with both the 5K and 10K being point to point runs with an overall elevation drop to the finish lines. Our 5K course will produce many memorable PR’s and our 10K course with it’s beautiful half mile visible down hill finish will give many runners their much sought after Peachtree RR qualifying time. All runners love to run a PR (personal record) and will remember that they ran it here. The Cumming Fair Grounds will be the staging/finishing area that will give us parking for approximately 2000 cars and restrooms with ample stalls to virtually eliminate waiting lines even for women. Buses will transport runners/walkers to the starting line, but for the runners who want to run a pre race warm up. It’s only one mile to the start from the fair grounds via the shortest route along sidewalks. The finishing area is inside the fair grounds with great sponsors booths both indoors and outdoors.
We give advanced technical fiber t-shirts in both men’s and women’s cut and goodie bags. FREE professional photos are available to all runners.
Prostate Cancer Awareness
We use our event and it's venue to promote increased awareness of prostate cancer and also educate the public of their many treatment options with information booths. We will also be providing free PSA testing and DR exams during the 2013 event. We expect 800-1000 attendees. Between our 2009 and 2012 Fast Pace Races at the Cumming Fair grounds we have had just over 300 men take advantage of our free PSA screening.
Bill Rodgers 2013 Race Spokesman
We will be bringing “Boston Billy” Bill Rodgers as our 2013 spokesman. Bill twice set American Marathon records, Won The New York and Boston Marathon 4 times each. He also held the world 10k record at 28:36.4. Bill was the overall winner in 22 marathons during his career, Bill is a prostate cancer survivor so he’s a real believer in “screening saves lives”.
