About Chick fil-Connect Half Marathon

A beery, artsy and laid-back college town roughly 70 miles east of Atlanta, Athens has an extremely popular football team (the University of Georgia Bulldogs), a world-famous music scene (which has launched artists including the B-52s, R.E.M. and Widespread Panic) and a burgeoning restaurant culture. The university drives the culture of Athens and ensures an ever-replenishing supply of young bar-hoppers and concert-goers, some of whom stick around long after graduation and become ‘townies.’ The pleasant, walkable downtown offers a plethora of funky choices for eating, drinking and shopping.

This will be the backdrop for the Chick-Fil-A Connect Half Marathon!!

Athens, Georgia isn’t just about college football — it’s also the home of the Chick-Fil-A Connect Half Marathon, held each April in the home of the Georgia Bulldogs.

Overview

The half marathon starts in downtown Athens on East Washington Street and proceeds on a loop course. From there, runners turn on Broad Street and run up and back along the North Oconee River before entering the University of Georgia campus, running past Sanford Stadium and various campus buildings. After exiting the UGA campus and running through residential neighborhoods, the course makes its way back to downtown Athens and toward the finish line near the start point.
