Half Marathon 

1) Take MARTA Rail to the Midtown Station, and exit onto 10th Street. The Half Marathon Start line is right up the hill from 10th Street, at 11th Street and Peachtree Walk. The Half Marathon finish line is about 1/2 mile walk to the MARTA Midtown Station. The Arts Center Marta Station is another close station. 

2) We recommend parking at the Parking Deck for Piedmont Park / Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Use GPS address: 1320 Monroe Drive, Atlanta, GA  30306. Exit the parking deck on the first level and walk into Piedmont Park, past the finish line. Exit out of Piedmont Park on 12th Street (Green Market area), and continue up 12th Street. Pass Peachtree Street and turn left onto Peachtree Walk. The start line is at 11th and Peachtree Walk.  After you finish the race, you can walk the short distance back to the parking deck. 

You can also park near the start line, but there aren't as many options. After the race, you'd just walk back to your car.  

Due to safety and insurance issues, no strollers, baby joggers, roller blades, animals, or other vehicular apparatus are allowed on the race course. 

After the race, you’ll receive your finisher medal, get your picture taken with Jeff Galloway and pick up your after-race refreshments. It’s a pleasant walk to MARTA (Midtown or Arts Center).
