Prostate cancer is the most common major cancer in American men today. One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. On Saturday, October 28th and 29th, 2017, Forsyth Area Striders Team (F.A.S.T.), along with the Prostate Condition Education Council (PCEC) and Georgia Urology is proud to present the seventh annual FAST PACE RACE. This event, and its proceeds, promotes prostate cancer awareness, education, and treatment options. We also offer free PSA testing and DR exams. We’ve had over 500 men take advantage of our free PSA Screenings.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Each course was designed by runners, for runners. The 5K,10K and half marathon are all chip-timed, point-to-point runs with an overall elevation drop to the finish line. The NEW 5K faster than before course will produce many memorable PRs and along with the 10K course with its beautiful half-mile, the visible downhill finish will give many runners their much sought-after Peachtree Road Race qualifying time. The half marathon will also be a very scenic point to point route.
