Each year, runners, walkers and strollers are invited to kick off the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival, a free, two-day arts and music festival on Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25, 2019, at the annual Adams Realtors Run for the Park 5K. Hosted by Grant Park’s premiere real estate company, Adams Realtors, this year’s race will take place on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 8 a.m. and will once again feature a 5K, a free kid’s tot trot for ages 5 and under and a stroller stroll along the course. Rain or shine and with all proceeds benefiting the Grant Park Conservancy and its mission of protecting, enhancing and preserving the park while planning for its future needs, the course map start and finish will be at the main entrance to Zoo Atlanta. Also serving as a Peachtree Road Race qualifier, the Adams Realtors Run for the Park 5K will also feature an awards ceremony and participants ages 21 and up will receive a complimentary draft beer with a valid ID and race bib courtesy of Bill Adams and Adams Realtors at Dakota Blue.
