The U.S. 10K Classic is Atlanta’s premier multi-event road race, bringing runners, walkers, inline skaters, wheelchair athletes and professional cyclists together for a single cause – raising awareness and funds for children’s charities in Georgia and for the future development of the World Children’s Center.
This 6.2 mile road racing and 100K Pro Cycling event is held on Labor Day each year in Atlanta, on U.S. Hwy 41 (Cobb Parkway), a major four lane highway, offering a straight but challenging course. Race Participants include elite athletes from around the world, national and regional 10K running champions, international and regional cyclists, inline skaters, wheelchair athletes, corporate team runners, race walkers, walkers and people who just love to participate!
The U.S. 10K Classic was developed as a trust fund and legacy for children that it might continue to grow and expand, becoming an ever-increasing source of revenue for the charities that work to make life better for all children.
We appreciate our many sponsors. Special thanks to Rock The Boat Audio for providing waterproof outdoor speakers and equipment for the race.
