Preyer’s Race the Bar 8K


Preyer’s has been a part of the Race the Bar Series for several years and it will again serve as one of our fall stops on the RTB tour!  We will be hosting an 8K this year and I think we have finally perfected this gorgeous course.  Athletes will start and finish at Preyer’s.  While on the course,  they will spend some time in neighborhoods surrounding The Lake Daniels Greenway.  The course will take out the big hill on Courtland, slightly reducing the overall elevation change.  We will be USATF certifying the course for 2018!  When athletes get to the finish line, they will be greeted with live music, beer and awesome finisher’s prizes!

Course Maps

    The 8K is a great distance for a lot of reasons.  If you have just started doing 5Ks, this will push you out of your comfort zone a bit.  If you are training for an end of season half marathon or marathon, this is a great way to get the lead out one more time before the big event!

    The course itself is fast, fun ans accurate
