Starting Location / Pre-Race Staging
The Brookhaven Bolt starts on Caldwell Road directly behind Village Place Brookhaven. All runners are to gather in the parking lot behind Village Place Brookhaven no later than 7:45 A.M. Please take into account the short walk from our parking area to the starting area.
Our race will begin on Caldwell Road shortly before the intersection with Green Meadows. Competitive runners are advised to congregate at or near the back entrance to Village Place Brookhaven near Savi Urban Market. Again we will have many volunteers in the area so do not hesitate to ask questions.
Our race is through the beautiful neighborhood of Ashford Park. Please follow the cones and stay within the race course. BE AWARE OF WHERE YOU ARE RUNNING AND THOSE AROUND YOU. As with all streets, there will be occasional areas of the road that are not smooth and may present a tripping hazard to runners.
Our race course is a loop which allows us to have our start and finish lines in the same area. The finish line is on Dresden Drive directly in front of Village Place Brookhaven. Upon completing the race, please enter the parking lot on your right for refreshments and snacks.
We are very thankful to all of our sponsors for the Bolt and encourage all of our runners to participate in the post race festival. We will present awards to our top male and female finishers. In previous years we raffled off an iPod, Apple TV, braves tickets, gift certificates, Brookhaven Beer Festival Tickets, big screen TVs and much more. Must be present to win. Live Race results will be located at or near the finish line courtesy of Orion Racing. The post-race festival is family friendly with jump castles, snacks and games for the kids. Our generous sponsors will raffle off a ton of great items. Awards presentation for winners. Drinks, food and incredible atmosphere. Visit Village Place Brookhaven stores and restaurants for post race fun. T-shirt pickup is available post race.
Bring the Family
This is a pet and family friendly event, so please encourage all that do not participate in the race to join us for the post race festival. We have jump castles(moon walks) and popcorn for the kids.
