BROOKHAVEN, Ga. -- The Brookhaven Bolt, a 5K that is quickly becoming a city tradition, will be held this weekend.
The race will be Saturday, May 17 at 8 a.m. Its course begins at Village Place Brookhaven on Dresden Drive and winds through the Ashford Park neighborhood.
Packet pickup will be held Friday, May 16 from 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Big Peach Running Co. in the Town Brookhaven shopping center.
The run will be chip timed, and prizes will be presented to the male and female winners. But all runners will receive T-shirts and the opportunity to compete for great raffle prizes; past awards include iPods, big screen TVs and Braves tickets. There will also be a post-race festival with bouncy castles and games.
All proceeds from the race will go directly to Brookhaven's Ashford Park Elementary School. The race is sponsored by Brookhaven Dental Associates.
