2023 Race Dates Announced

We’re happy to announce that the dates for all of the 2023 Barnesville Grand Prix Series races have been set.

We’ll kick things off on March 25th at 9:30 AM with the Barnesville Park/Rotary Lake 5k Trail Walk & Run and Kids Fun Run. Registration for Rotary Lake Trail 5k is now open. Applications can also be downloaded.

The Rails-to-Trails 5k Run/Walk/K9 Walk & Tunnel Fun Run will take place on May 20th.

The Barnesville Pumpkin Festival 5k Run & Walk will take place on September 23rd. Please note that the Pumpkin Festival 5k is always the Saturday of the last full weekend in September. This means it will never fall on the 30th; hence, the 5k will be “early” this year on the 23rd.

The Santa’s Spirit Sprint will be on December 2nd. The Santa Sprint Start time will be adjusted slightly back to its original 3:00 PM start to give those race participants who are also in the parade extra time.

We’ll be adding more information about these races as the dates approach, so be sure to keep checking back.
