The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Atlanta Marathon Returning for 2011

The Atlanta Marathon will return next year in 2011 after taking a hiatus this year due to several factors.

In 2010, the ATC made the decision to remove the Atlanta Marathon from Thanksgiving Day, where it had been a part of the Atlanta Half Marathon festivities, in order to find a date that would allow for the course time limit to be extended from five to six and a half hours.

The marathon, a favorite of many locals and veteran marathon runners, will take place on October 30, 2011.

The 2011 version will feature a new course which has some enthusiastic and others a bit disappointed.

The Atlanta Marathon and Marathon Relay will start and finish at Atlantic Station and features a new, loop course entirely within the City of Atlanta that takes participants on a tour of the city going past well-known sites and neighborhoods such as Centennial Olympic Park, Georgia Institute of Technology, CNN Center, Philips Arena, Georgia Aquarium, Turner Field, The King Center, Grant Park, Virginia-Highlands, Piedmont Park, Buckhead and along stretches of the famous Peachtree Road.  The official course for the Atlanta Marathon and Marathon Relay will be released in early 2011.

Registration until the end of 2010 is just $55 and can be done online at AtlantaTrackClub.org.  The registration fee will incrementally increase and be $125 on the day of the race.
