In the course of running events, it has become necessary for we, the runners of North Georgia, to choose our own race We have the inalienable right to sleep later and stay closer to home We yearn to avoid the MARTA crowd and find easy parking We cry for the mercy of a level running ground We run in pursuit of happiness: a soft, tri-blend race t-shirt We will establish a new tradition and promote our health We, the runners of North Georgia, can count the blessings of having a local race.
