Junior and Adult Sprint Triathlon

If you have been looking for a triathlon that will challenge your whole family, then you have come to the right place! Run for God is proud to announce the 3rd annual Dalton Parks Triathlon. This fast and flat course sits in the heart of Dalton, GA at the newly remodeled and state of the art "Ronald Nix Complex" at James Brown Park. This race is somewhat small in numbers, but if you have ever been to a Run for God race, then you know that the atmosphere is nothing short of a National event.

This course is kid and beginner friendly and will challenge even the most seasoned athlete. Safety is our number one concern which is why we have gone to great lengths to have the entire course closed to traffic at all times. It is our hope that you will join.

Why do you wait for the last runner to finish before handing out awards?

We get this question often, and we understand that some of you fast runners may be waiting a while before getting your award. But here at Run for God, we have decided that EVERYONE should experience that magical finish line experience no matter what their may be. For this reason, we hope that you will hang around and help us cheer every runner in, and be inspired by those who just a short time ago were saying “I can’t” and are now saying “I did”.

Finishers Medals

Run for God is pleased to announce that starting in 2014 ALL, yes ALL race finishers will receive a high quality die cast medal for completing one of our hosted of sanctioned races. These medals are sure to stand out as one of your favorite keep sake items from ANY race!
