Suwanee Day Classic runners have two choices for routes

SUWANEE - Runners in the ninth annual Suwanee Day Classic, scheduled for Sept. 12, have their choice of two routes.

Participants may choose from a 5K route through historic Old Town or a 10K course along the Suwanee Creek Greenway, according to a news release.

Both races begin and end at Town Center Park, at the intersection of Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and Buford Highway. The 10K begins at 8 a.m., and 5K runners will take off at 8:30 a.m.

All runners who register by Sept. 5 are guaranteed a race T-shirt. Runners who register later will receive shirts while supplies last. The entry fee is $18 if received by Sept. 5 and $20 thereafter. Race-day registration begins at 6:30 a.m. at Town Center Park.

A downloadable registration form as well as a link to online registration is available at www.suwaneeday.com/race.html.

Awards will be given to about 70 individuals in various age groups as well as to runners ages 12 and under who complete the course.

The 2009 Suwanee Day Classic, which will be held the week before the annual Suwanee Day festival, is organized by BodyPlex Fitness Adventure with sponsorship support from Optimum Health and Suwanee Family Dentistry.
