The 13th Annual AthHalf Half Marathon and the 6th Annual 5K get underway this weekend. The half marathon winds through Athens’ historic districts, downtown and the UGA campus.

The AthHalf is produced each year by the nonprofit organization AthFest Educates, which provides grants to fund music and arts education programs for local K-12 youth.
The 5K is Saturday and the Half Marathon is Sunday morning. In addition, Saturday features an expo from noon to 6 pm Saturday.  
Carole Black is the race coordinator. Black says that while both events sold out early this year, interested runners can still participate in the half marathon virtually.

Visit AthHalf.com for more information, or to register for the virtual race.
