Entering its 9th year, the Publix Georgia Marathon & Half Marathon has established itself as a premier long distance event appealing to elite runners, wheelchair athletes, recreational runners and walkers alike. ******The Life Time Run Finish Line Challenge****** The LTR Finish Line Challenge was conceived to create a weekend of fitness and fun for Life Time Run Finish Line Training members from around the country. While centered on the Publix Georgia Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K, the weekend will also feature a pre-race LTR dinner, opportunities to explore local attractions, meet new friends or to just kick back, relax, and enjoy the spring sunshine. The marathon, half marathon, and 5k will feature a friendly competition on both an individual and club basis for all participating LTR members. After crossing the Finish Line, LTR members are invited to gather in a “members only” hospitality tent to refuel and reunite with friends. All athletes participating in a LTR Training Program are eligible to participate in the Challenge. Athletes participating in the Life Time Run Finish Line Challenge enjoy the following benefits: • Guaranteed entry for all LTR Members, • Discounted entry fee: • Complimentary Marathon, Half Marathon, or 5K entry for up to (formula TBD) coaches • Discounted group room rate at Hotel partner near race site (availability guaranteed through pre-determined date ) • Pre-race Dinner • Hospitality Tent in Centennial Olympic Park Post Race area • Entry in the Life Time Run Finish Line Challenge (structure of competition TBD) • Team Shirt The Publix Georgia Marathon & Half Marathon highlights the best of Atlanta.
