Updated 1/6/2017: The race is cancelled for tomorrow, Jan. 7, and is rescheduled for January 21st.

This decision has not been easy, but with the advice of the Marietta Police Dept, the Georgia Runner director, St. James Marietta and our tremendous Race Committee, we feel this is the decision we make for the safety of everyone.

Thank you for your support of the Wonderful Days Preschool.
