SUPPORTING HEALTH & WELLNESS
Created by Forward Performing Arts & the Madison Scouts, The Mad Dash 5K was started to support and promote a healthy lifestyle and fitness in our nation's youth, with particular focus toward those young people participating in high school marching bands, color guards, and drum lines. Proceeds raised through the Mad Dash 5K will be used to advance health & wellness initiatives in the marching arts through practice and a series of educational clinics.
ABOUT THE RUN
The 2017 Atlanta Mad Dash 5K is a paved course through beautiful Grant Park near downtown Atlanta, GA. The scenic course winds through wooded areas and consists of paved trails throughout. Participants will begin and end the race near the Grant Park Farmer's Market entrace at the intersection of Cherokee Avenue and Milledge Avenue on the west side of the park.
