Annual Loop the Lake 5k Set for June 11, 2011

Jun 1, 2011 by staff

Loop the Lake is an annual event that benefits GraceWay Recovery Residence in Albany and Ruth’s Cottage/The Patticake House in Tifton. Every dollar from race registrations and sponsorships goes directly to the charities. The event was originated by Dr. Edward Hellman, spine surgeon with The Spine & Scoliosis Center at Georgia Sports in Tifton.

The 1-mile course loops around the campground and the Resort and through the area in front of the Marina for the finish. The 5K (3.1 miles) runs through the Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park and along the lake. It is one of the most scenic courses in South Georgia, offering breathtaking views of the lake, a few sections of off-road running and gentle rolling hills.
