The Hearts & Soles is part of the Atlanta Track Club Grand Prix series. It's free for members and only $10 for non-members. If you're looking for a fun local event, that's known to be fast for some good PRs and Peachtree qualifying times, this is the race for you.
- Easy parking at GA Perimeter College
- Race morning packet pickup and race day registration
- Costume contest
-Team based contest, best combined times in various age/gender categories
-There's 1 hill (down on the way out, up on the way back) which allows for a speedy first half and a solid PR if you don't kill yourself in that fast first half (I PRd by 1min30sec)
-Bagels, donuts, coffee, snacks at the finish. 1 aid station with water.
-Since this is part of the free grand prix race series, there is no swag (the kids race gets little medallions I think). I don't really think of this as a con considering it's only a 5k and it's FREE.
-Course is an out and back through a boring neighborhood past a middle school. Not much to write home about.
