ABOUT THE EVENT

Join us for Atlanta's first race benefiting STEM education and awareness at Piedmont Park on May 4, 2019 - the 5K Race Through Space! We'll blast off from the Sun, traveling 600,000 kilometers with every step, and whiz past the planets through a scale layout of our solar system.

Not up for the long haul all the way to Neptune? Change your mission final destination to Saturn on our 1.6km Fun Run – great for kids and more casual astronauts.

Many thanks to Randstad USA    for their support of this Race Through Space.  All proceeds from this event go to support Atlanta Science Festival Inc, a 501c3 non-profit corporation.

Piedmont Park is surrounded by Piedmont Avenue, Monroe Drive and 10th Street. Visitors can enter from multiple entry points such as the 12th or 14th Street gates off Piedmont Avenue, or the Charles Allen Gate off of 10th Street. A popular way to get to the park is the Atlanta Beltline which comes into the North end of the park near the Piedmont Commons, and into the South end at the intersection of 10th Street and Monroe Drive.
