The 8th Annual Dalton Red Carpet Half Marathon/5K/2K runs along the streets of this northern Georgia city that's often called the "carpet capital of the world" thanks to its plentiful carpeting, dye and home construction industry.
Though the areas around the city are marked by the sight of rolling mountainous terrain and the trees of the Chattahoochee National Forest are off in the distance, the terrain for the race is mostly flat and fast by contrast, as it follows an out-and-back course that starts and finishes in the city of Dalton, which lies just east of the Interstate 75 highway between Atlanta and Chattanooga, Tennessee.
100% of the race proceeds with no administrative cost supports The City of Refuge whose mission is the commitment to affecting real change in the lives of those left living in the margins of society by addressing the needs of the disadvantaged regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender or disability and to help integrate them back into society to lead healthy functional lives.
We are committed to deploying men, women, and resources into environments where difficulty resides, bringing hope to those who live there. The promise of a better life, along with the tools to build that life is the passion of City of Refuge.
