The Sunrise on the Square Road Race will be held on Saturday September 2 at 8am. 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 46 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 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.
This event is hosted by Main Street Newnan, in partnership to benefit Newnan-Coweta Boys & Girls Club. The Newnan-Coweta Boys & Girls Club works with hundreds of kids and teens to help them reach their full potential.
