Race Day - New 2020 Date Coming Soon!


Our 2020 August race has been postponed, with a new date coming soon!

Honoring the heat and humidity of summer, we invite you to the 15th annual Dog Days 5K Run in Marietta. All in the family are welcome to run, jog or walk the race. Good music, great food and lots of prizes and giveaways! Over the years, the Rotary Club of East Cobb has donated more than $500,000 from race proceeds to local and international service projects.

Our beautiful, centrally located start/finish point (McCleskey-East Cobb YMCA) ensures a fast, smooth run through the East Cobb streets and our race shirts are ideal for either running races or running errands. We’ll have bounce houses for the kids and plenty of food and fluids for all entrants, plus lots of awards and a cool commemorative 15th Annual Dog Days shirt!

Starting Point - McCleskey-East Cobb YMCA (1055 E. Piedmont, Marietta, GA 30062)

It may be midyear for everyone else, but it’s the end of our “Rotarian Year”, and with that, my (Erica’s) official farewell from Social Media on behalf of our Club as the Rotary Club of East Cobb’s PR Chair term has ended!

I wanted to thank all you Rotarian and Non Rotarian “Facebookies” who have engaged with us this past year! You’ve made our page less like a social media page and more like a dialogue with great friends! 😀

I particularly enjoyed last year’s exchanges I had with runners and sponsors about our annual Dog Days 5K.

You may have noticed there hasn’t been a post about this year’s Dog Days Race - YET - but I promise you all, that’s about to start as there IS going to be a race- we are just quite busy behind the scenes “McGuyver-ing” IT, in light of Covid-19. (Is “McGuyvering” a verb? Oh... well, it is now!) 😁

So stay tuned for even MORE fun and awesome-ness happening here and on our other social media platforms as we pivot with the pandemic and as a new PR talent assumes command of the chair!

Finally... you know I have to sign off with it one last time because our Club is about to meet in one hour via Zoom... and this hashtag has kinda become “my thing”... sooo...

...on behalf of the Club take care, stay safe, and please feel free to join us sometime at the Rotary Club of East Cobb nice and early Wednesday morning to experience
#ThisIsHowWeWednesday 😁!

Another HUGE virtual participation in our weekly meeting... Thank you @Joe Murphy for being our gracious host. A big thank you to Jennifer Rhett from REAP, our guest speaker this morning. And thank you to our club members for attending this a.m., some of you brand new to the ZOOM call experience. It was great to see some faces that many of us hadn't seen in weeks!

Last (but not least) if you don't have a Rotary Club to call home, message us if you'd like to attend a meeting!

A Rotary Meeting is a great way to kickoff your Wednesday!
