The Sunrise on the Square Labor Day Road Race is a local favorite, and has been held annually in Downtown Newnan on the Saturday before Labor Day for over 25 years!
The race begins in Downtown Newnan and spans through “The City of Homes,” where runners will catch a glimpse of our beautiful, historic in-town neighborhoods and commercial district.
The race features a 5k /10k USATF certified course (chipped timing), where runners will enjoy the diversity of terrain, including: long flat stretches, downhill, and uphill sections. The Sunrise on the Square Labor Day Road race welcomes both runners and walkers of all skill levels. Runners are given options to pursue a 5K route, and a/or 10k route. A "Tot- Trot" sprint is hosted after all of the runners have returned from the finish line for all children who wish to participate in the event. Tot-Trot participation is cost free, and takes around 2- 3 minutes to complete!
This event is hosted by Main Street Newnan, in partnership to benefit Communities in Schools of Coweta County. Communities In Schools of Coweta County provides services and support to students struggling to remain in school and graduate.
