Komen Race Info

Thanks to everyone that has donated or is participating in Saturday’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.  We just wanted to provide some details for those participating.


There should be parking available at the Dillard’s department store which is near the registration/start of the race.  Word on the street though is to arrive early.  Check your race packet or the race website for additional details.

Where to meet Saturday morning:

We will try to gather everyone and meet at 7:30 AM Saturday at the Subway restaurant in Atlantic Station.  Subway is on the corner of 17 1/2 St and Market St.  You can view the location by clicking on and viewing the Atlantic Station map here.  Subway is store # 157 on the map.

The Race:

There is a 1K walk and a 5K run/walk.  As of now, Meredith plans on walking the 5K route.  But, please do whichever route you are comfortable with.  Also, please don’t feel like you have to walk the 5K if you would prefer to run.  Based on conversations with a number of team members, there will be folks walking/running either route.

7:45 AM starts the 1 mile walk

8:30 AM starts the 5K run/walk

Post Race Festivities:

We will likely hang around Atlantic Station for any post race festivities.  Look for the “Gaile Force” team members coming across the finish line or head to the Expo area and try to meet outside the Kids Korral area.  This is a pretty big race, so we’ll do our best to connect post race.

From there we plan to head to Meehan’s Vinings.  If you can, please join us at Meehan’s Vinings around 11 AM for a drink and good company.


If you ordered a “Gaile Force” t-shirt, you may pick them up at Meehan’s Vinings on Friday from 4 – 8 PM or Saturday at 11 AM during the Meehan’s post race festivities.  Look for Gregg Ernst, the guy with the box of black “Gaile Force” t-shirts.  If you are unable to make either times, please work with Gregg (gernst@mindspring.com) to get your t-shirt.

    Sorry I can not be there this Saturday for the race…the entire group is in my thoughts! Wishing the afternoon is full of friends, cheers, smiles, laughter and hope!

  2. Nelly and I will be there. Our plans are to stop by Meehans and track down Greg tonight. I would LOVE to run the 5K but…well you have seen me. Not much of a qualified runner. I could fall out after 1K :-). We wouldn’t miss supporting Meredith for anything!!
