Sickle Cell Road Race & Walk Celebrates 39th Year

Runners Train For Peachtree Road Race Qualifier and RRCA Event in East Point

The Annual Sickle Road Race & Walk held Saturday, April 14, 2018 in East Point, is a great time for Peachtree Road Race competitors to run a qualifier and for advocates to team up in the name of family, friends, and co-workers who suffer from sickle cell anemia. The race is an official qualifying event for the Peachtree Road Race and is a RRCA-Certified State Championship race. Spectators are invited to cheer and sign up for the American Red Cross onsite blood drive.

The scenic course, which starts at Tri-Cities High School, is challenging for runners and gratifying for most walkers. Race registration is available online at Creating a team is a great way to experience the event, explained Race Director CW Wilson, an accomplished runner who has been involved since the event started. “Teams consist of ten or more who register under one team name such as “Team Carla or Team Red Cross or Team UPS,” he explained. “Then all the teams compete for bragging rights and the Largest Team Award.”
