FORSYTH COUNTY — A popular Atlanta half-marathon is moving to Forsyth County this fall.

According to a news release, the Atlanta 13.1 Marathon is expected to draw 3,500 participants on Oct. 4, when it starts and finishes at the Lanier Technical College Forsyth Conference Center, 3410 Ronald Reagan Blvd.

Race organizers say they wanted not only to attract the active running community in the north metro Atlanta counties, but also give runners across the metro area the convenience of a Saturday race.

There also will be a 5K for younger participants or those who prefer shorter distances. And athletes who want to walk either distance will compete in their own division, separate from the runners. 

Prizes will be awarded in both the walk and run divisions.

Previously held in Brookhaven, the event is a part of the nationwide Michelob ULTRA 13.1 Marathon series produced by Life Time. To register, or for more information about the event, visit
