Imagine yourself sprinting down the field inside the Georgia Dome and glancing up to see yourself on the Jumbotron as you approach the 50-yard line. The Atlanta Falcons will be filing away their favorite moments from the Dome as they begin their final season at their current home – and you also have a chance to make memories on the field!
Atlanta Track Club offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Falcons fans of all ages to finish a 5K, One Mile or 50m Dash inside the Georgia Dome. The Rise Up and Run 5K/Walk Like MADD presented by Northside Hospital will be held on Saturday, September 10 at 7:30 a.m. Participants finish on the 50-yard line and receive a commemorative shirt and medal.
In addition to a finish time, all 5K participants will receive a 40-yard split time for their final yards on the field, just like football players who are being evaluated by scouts for the NFL Draft! Participants can also meet Freddie Falcon and the Falcons Cheerleaders as well as play games on the field.
This year, the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta Track Club are partnering with Mothers Against Drunk Driving Georgia for this event. 100% of the proceeds will benefit MADD and their efforts to raise awareness and funds to eliminate drunk driving.
Registration is available at atlantatrackclub.org. Join us as we support a good cause and celebrate the Falcons’ final season at the Georgia Dome!
