The Cause

The Super Hero 5K is a benefit run to raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.  The Kennesaw Police Department started fundraising for Special Olympics in 1993.  They have raised over $300,000  through various fundraisers  such as Cops on Donut Shops,  Polar Plunge, Festivals, 5K races and others.  .

These funds help provide for year round sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.  Special Olympics provides the athletes not only a social outlet, but gives them an opportunity to feel respected and show that everyone matters.  We want everyone to be a hero to someone that will never be able to say, "Thank You".

Start and finish on Cobb International located off of Hwy. 41 in Kennesaw Georgia. This race will be run on the 2nd certified course within the city limits of Kennesaw!

Race will start at 1300 Cobb International Parkway in Kennesaw, Georgia.  Registration will open at 7:00 a.m. with the 1 mile race starting at 7:30 a.m., 5K  at 8:00 a.m. and Tot

Trot at 9:00 a.m.
