Race Day - August 3, 2019


Honoring the heat and humidity of summer, we invite you to the 14th annual Dog Days 5K Run in Marietta on August 3, 2019. 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 14th Annual Dog Days shirt!

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