The 29th Annual Old Courthouse 5K, Saturday, June 11, 2022

For over 29 years, runners and fun seekers from across metro Atlanta and beyond have been attracted to Fayetteville for a specific Saturday in June.  That attraction is the annual Old Courthouse 5K.  Participants, volunteers, and spectators alike, bonded by a common interest to serve, will experience the opportunity to help the most fragile of our community.  Organized and directed by the Fayette County Civitan Club, the 29th Annual Old Courthouse 5K will be on Saturday, June 11th.  Proceeds from the event will go directly to organizations that serve families with exceptional children in our community.  Some of these include the Joseph Sams School, Fayette ExceptionalOPS, Fayette County Special Olympics, Two Sparrows Village, Southside Support, Camp Big Heart(http://campbigheart.org/), and Southwest Christian Care (Hospice, Hope House, Senior Care, Spiritual Care).

The run will begin at 8:00 am at the Fayette County Senior Services Center located near the Fayette County Justice Center, @ 4 Center Drive in Fayetteville.  Day of Race registration will begin at 7:00, pre-registration is available online at: www.oc5k.run, or go to active.com https://www.active.com/fayetteville-ga/running/distance-running-races/29th-annual-old-courthouse-5k-2022.

The 5K run is an open race event and doesn’t restrict participants based upon age, gender, or ability. Like past years runs, there will be some crazy fantastic door prizes, refreshments, and the overwhelmingly popular “Old Court House 5K” T-shirts for all registered participants.  Door prizes are furnished by some of our corporate sponsors, wonderful donators, and the Fayette County Civitan Club.

The OC5K couldn’t be a success without support from our sponsors.  They include our anchor sponsors Your Pie Pizza of PTC, Chick-fil-A Inc, and the Chick-fil-A Dwarf House of Fayetteville.  Our Gold Sponsor ER Walker Flooring Specialists/Shaw Floors returns in 2022.  Action Tire Company and Delta Community Credit Union and Play it Again Sports are on board as Silver Sponsors while the following continue as Bronze sponsors, Kroger (Town Hall), Allen Chiropractic, Broadway Diner, Pyke and Associates P.C., Vic’s Auto Air and Brake Service and Grand Courier of Fayetteville.  Please support our sponsors in being servants to their community.  This year’s event also could not be made possible without the cooperation and assistance of the Fayetteville Police Department, led by Chief Scott Gray, as well as the Fayette Senior Services and Life Enrichment Center.
