The time is approaching for the annual Old Courthouse 5K presented by The Georgia Civitan Foundation and the Fayette County Civitan Club.

For more than 23 years, runners from all over the Atlanta metro area and beyond have come to Fayetteville to spend their Saturday mornings to enjoy the fun, the exercise, the fellowship and the opportunity to help those that can’t help themselves by participating in the Old Courthouse 5K.

The Fayette County Civitan Club is sponsoring this year’s 5K run Saturday, June 11.

The run will begin at 8 a.m. at the Fayette County Senior Services Center located at the Fayette County Justice Center, 4 Center Drive in Fayetteville.

Proceeds from the 5K run will aid organizations serving medically fragile citizens of our community, such as the Joseph Sams School, ExceptionalOPS, Fayette County Special Olympics, and Southwest Christian Care (Hospice, Hope House, Senior Care, and Spiritual Care).

The run is an open race to all runners of all kinds, who desire exercise and fun while helping great community organizations and the special-needs children of Fayette County.  As always, there will be the door prizes, refreshments and the T-shirts for all registered participants.

Day-of-race registration will open at 7 a.m. in front of the Fayette Senior Services building. Now that early registration has begun, you can pre-register at
