Designated parking is available below the train trestle just before the entry to Shelby Bottoms or in parking lots across from the Riverside Shelter and off the Shelby Drive entrance into the park. Handicapped permitted parking is available closer to the event start. Please ask volunteers for directions or follow the signs.

Park Police will close down roads crossing the course at 7:45 am. Roads will remain closed until 9:00 am unless all runners have completed the course prior to 9:00 am. Any runners still on the course at 9:00 am will be asked to leave the course.

The course has been certified. The 8:00 am mass race start will be by air horn.

The course has some moderate rises. Runners need to be mindful of any rough areas or broken gravel. The course starts in Shelby Park by the Lake Lanier spillway. It circles the lake counter clockwise passes in front of the Village tents across the spillway, then follows the course to the right past the practice ballfields under the train trestle and into Shelby Bottoms.

Runner Tips:
NAMI Davidson 5K staff is on your side! For many of you, this will be your first 5K. Whether this is your first or fiftieth race, congratulations on your commitment to fitness and a healthy lifestyle! And thank you for your support! Whether you choose to run, walk or boogie, the following tips will help to ensure you have a fun and safe & successful experience.

TRAIN Respect the distance you’ve chosen to walk or run. There are many different training programs available. Be sure you chose one that had you complete at least 2/3 of the race distance several times during your training period. Ifnot, slow down and participate at a safe & comfortable pace.

HYDRATE Ifyou have not calculated your fluid needs for this race, there are two strategies which will ensure you don’t under or over-hydrate. The easiest is to only drink when you are thirsty. A basic hydration tip: limit fluid intake to 4-8 oz every 20 minutes.

SALT Losing salt through sweating and complex hormone changes during exercise can result in lowering your serum [blood] sodium level. This will not only affect your performance, it may lead to muscle cramping, headache, dizziness and confusion. Have some sports drink along the course to quench your thirst, or follow your pre-planned schedule.

PLEASE Write ANY & ALL pertinent medical conditions/ allergy information on the back of your bib number. While serious medical problems are quite rare, knowing any medical problems you have, medications you are taking or allergies to medications is extremely helpful to our Medical Volunteers.
Our goal is for all our runners to be: SMART. SAFE. And SUCCESSFUL!
