About the Magnolia Run
The Magnolia Run is EFGA's longest running fundraiser, supporting those living with epilepsy here in the state of Georgia for 33 years! We cannot express our gratitude enough to the entire epilepsy community! Thank you for the friends and family of loved ones living with epilepsy who continuously support this event! The 2015 Magnolia Run was a great success, all thanks to your support. We were able to raise just over $149,000, had an amazing 82 teams and over 1600 participants!
The Magnolia Run is held on a fairly flat course around Perimeter Mall and the surrounding streets. The course is accommodating to runners and walkers of all ages, speeds and athletic abilities. Dogs and strollers are welcome, but are asked to keep to the right if moving at a slower speed. Please note, the 5k and 1 Mile will begin simultaneously at 8:00AM. When registering for the 2016 Magnolia Run, participants will need to select either 5k or 1mile.

NEW for 2016 -- Important Information -- PLEASE READ
There is a new option for registration this year! We will begin the 5k and the 1 mile at the same time (like last year), but in order to ensure timing is correct for those doing the 5k there are a couple new options. If you would like to participate in the 5k and be timed, then select the option that reads 5k - TIMED with a registration fee of $30. If you do not wish to be timed, but would like to participate in the 5k, select 5k - No Timing ($25) and then there is the option of the 1 Mile, at $25.
If you do not choose the TIMED option, you will not receive a timing chip and no times will be recorded for your 5k. Should you decide at a later date that you would like to a timing chip for the 5k, you will need to contact Kathleen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awards will begin around 9:00am and will only be given to the following finishers: Male/Female Overall, Male/Female Masters Overall, and the 1st place finisher for Male/Female in their respective age groups. Awards will also be given to the top 5 fundraising teams.
Due to the new Chick-fil-A location within the grounds of Perimeter Mall the course for the 5k and the 1 mile have been modified. We have provided the course maps for you in preparation for the event. If you have any questions, contact us! View the course maps on our Event Details page.

FORM A TEAM!
You will never walk alone in the Magnolia Run! However, it’s more fun to do it as a team. Forming a team can strengthen family relationships, bring neighbors together and create a sense of camaraderie with your community. Creating a team also allows you to honor or memorialize someone you know or loved in a unique way. EFGA offers special recognition to teams the day of the race and prizes for the top 5 fundraising teams! Teams also encourage creativity, as many choose to create unique "team" shirts on their own to send a special message and enhance their team identity. The day of the Magnolia Run is a rainbow of colors and filled with team spirit. It is truly a unique and empowering experience!
Best of all, teams help to raise dramatically more funds to support the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia in its’ mission to create a greater quality of life for the more than 150,000 Georgians living with a seizure disorder. Put together your team today and get ready for an experience of a lifetime!
NEW FOR TEAMS -- This year, all teams will have the opportunity to create their own signage the morning of the Magnolia Run. We will be providing posters and markers for anyone who would like to make their very own team signs! These materials will be available in the TEAM AREA. EFGA will provide special signs for the Top 5 Fundraising teams!
