2020 Duck and Run 5K

Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful, Inc. has made the very difficult decision in light of the COVID-19 situation to CANCEL THE DUCK AND RUN 5K for this year. This has been a hard decision to make because of the funds lost for KALB, but the health and safety of our participants and volunteers are most important. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we hope to see you at next year's race!
It's our 17th annual Duck and Run 5K.  No gimmicks--just a well-run, certified, mildly challenging 5K on a beautiful and historic course.
