There are few 5K events in South DeKalb. PAHL is excited to offer another opportunity for South DeKalb residents to get out and participate in a fun active living event. 5K events are a great way to get excited about running and beginner participants are encouraged to run/walk the 5K or the 1 mile Fun Run. It is simply inspiring to finish the route and be part of a community event. Knowing that you are going to be in a 5K event can also be a great motivation for training. And anyone can do it!
