Join Historic Oakland Foundation for the 10th annual Run Like Hell 5K! The largest cemetery run in the country, Run Like Hell is one of Atlanta’s favorite neighborhood 5K fundraisers.
Run Like Hell is an ACJ Peachtree Road Race qualifier. The race begins at Lion Square and covers several areas of Oakland Cemetery, including the historic Jewish grounds, Confederate section, new Beaumont Allen Greenhouse, Hogpen Corner, Knit Mill, and Roger’s Hill, as well as the Memorial Drive Greenway to the state capitol. The keyhole course is entirely paved and gently rolling with soft turns, a much faster course than previous years!
Walkers, leashed dogs, and strollers are welcome. Awards will be given to the top three overall male and female finishers (individual and group) in their respective age groups. Prizes will also be given to the top costume in the following categories: Best Adult Male, Best Adult Female, Best Group, and Best Dog.
The race closes out at 1,600 participants, so be sure to register early!
