50th Anniversary Family Reunion & 5k/10k

April 1, 2017
8:00 am
Sweetwater Creek State Park

We're getting the family back together! On April 1st, the Georgia Conservancy invites you to our 50th Anniversary Family Reunion and Celebration at Sweetwater Creek State Park.

Join us for a day of outdoor recreation, education, and all-around-fun for Georgia Conservancy members, friends and those who have just heard of the work that we do. Thanks to REI and Georgia State Parks, we will host a 5k / 10k, activities, games and free hourly afternoon hikes.

The theme for our 50th Anniversary is "Our Past is Your Present", helping to underscore the idea that conservation isn't an accident. The places that we love to hike, paddle and explore today are places that someone in the past fought hard to protect. At Sweetwater Creek State Park, that someone was The Georgia Conservancy.

REI and Georgia Conservancy 5k / 10k

"Back in time" race celebrates our 50th Anniversary thanks to REI Outdoor School.

Join REI and the Georgia Conservancy for a unique trail race held at Sweetwater Creek State Park. Whether you're looking to run your first trail race or hoping to hit a personal best, this fun, light-hearted race will help you set your pace! Here's how it works: submit your finish time in advance, and the winner is determined by the runner who is "Back in Time" closest to their prediction. Downside: this means no watches, no headphones, no GPS units, no timing devices of any kind are allowed. Upside: there will be prizes! Categories will be the top 3 guesses in women's and men's categories.

All runners will receive a free Georgia Conservancy 50th Anniversary t-shirt. 100% of proceeds from this event will benefit the Georgia Conservancy. Check-in begins at 8:00 a.m. at the interpretive center / park office at Sweetwater Creek State Park. Georgia State Parks annual pass or $5 parking fee required for parking.
