AtlantaOctober 7-9, 2016
Your Susan G. Komen 3-Day®journey will begin with an inspirational Opening Ceremony at Stone Mountain Park. We'll proceed along a paved walking path, and continue to utilize PATH trails as we walk through the smaller towns of Clarkston and Avondale Estates. While there is abundant shade, so are there plenty of hills. In the afternoon, we'll continue into downtown Decatur and the hilly, scenic neighborhoods of Candler Park, Inman Park and Historic Fourth Ward. We'll finish our day by taking to the urban sidewalks of downtown Atlanta before arriving at the Georgia World Congress Center, our home away from home for the weekend.
Saturday's route continues to provide us with plenty of shade and hills as we walk northeast towards Buckhead. The hills will level off slightly through the neighborhoods surrounding Buckhead and we'll make our way towards the paved sidewalks of Woodfield and Springlake. Atlanta's Northside Beltline Trail will surely be an afternoon highlight with its old-fashioned train trestle. And as we make our way back into the city via W. Peachtree St. NW, we are once again walking in urban Midtown before returning to downtown's Georgia World Congress Center. Our final stretch from pit stop 4 until camp will be the Survivor Stretch, to connect us all back to the reason we do this. Then it's back to camp for another night of community, camaraderie and fun at our reunion party.
The final day of our journey finds us walking the sidewalks of Georgia Tech's beautiful campus and amongst the city streets of Midtown. We'll make our way through Morningside-Lenox Park before taking to Atlanta's Eastside Beltline Trail and Historic Fourth Ward Park. From there, we'll walk through the shaded streets of Druid Hills before taking on the Freedom Park Trail towards Georgia State University. There is a steep incline before reaching the state capitol but the reward will be plenty of shade and a downward route towards Turner Field for the Closing Ceremony. Read our full preview of the entire route on the 3-Day blog.
