The Refuge Run is a 5K & 10K Peachtree Road Race Qualifier benefiting City of Refuge, where we bring light, hope and transformation to individuals and families in crisis.The 5K course will lead participants through the neighborhoods of Atlanta’s historic westside, which has been home to City of Refuge for nearly 14 years.
10K participants will go beyond the westside to Atlanta’s iconic downtown, passing by the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium on their way back to the finish line at City of Refuge.
Both courses represent the routes that thousands have taken as they come seeking a pathway out of poverty at City of Refuge.
At the end of the race all participants will receive a City of Refuge t-shirt, water, snack from the 180 Kitchen, and Peachtree Road Race qualified time by showing your racing bib.
