Oakhurst Cooperative Preschool: “Beat the Street for Little Feet” 5K race

Oakhurst Cooperative Preschool (OCP) is proud to present the 5th Annual “Beat the Street for Little Feet” 5K race. The race will be held in just five weeks, on Saturday, April 14, at 8 am at Coan Park. This family-centered, environmentally respectful event is aimed at attracting both competitive runners looking to set personal bests as well as casual runners and walkers. The event will be returning to the fast course inaugurated last year at the wonderful Coan Park in Atlanta’s Kirkwood and Edgewood neighborhoods.

Event Highlights: 5K with jogging stroller division, one mile race, and kids’ fun run. Prizes for overall first place men and women, and master’s men and women. Another Cool “Pete the Cat” race T-shirt for ALL racers with ORIGINAL ART designed by award-winning artist James Dean. Post-race awards ceremony, runners’ expo, and children’s party with activities and music.

Please register by Sunday, April 1, to be guaranteed a Pete T-shirt on race day. Can’t make it to the race? No problem–just register as a phantom runner by Friday, April 12, and we will mail a T-shirt directly to you.

In keeping with OCP’s commitment to sustainability, we will continue to “green” our race by employing several initiatives such as offering only compostable drinking cups, and special efforts will be made to collect any compostable or recyclable waste generated by the event. We will also host a reuse-a-shoe drive in conjunction with the race. A special door prize will be awarded by raffle to one participant who makes an effort to be green on race day by bringing a pair of shoes to recycle or by using alternative transportation such as biking, walking, carpooling, or taking MARTA. Thanks again for your support of Oakhurst Cooperative Preschool. We hope to see you at Beat the Street for Little Feet!
