On November 26, 2011, just days after Atlantans have enjoyed their Thanksgiving feasts, thousands of women from around the region will convene at the Chateau Elan Winery & Resort in Braselton, GA for a women’s fitness event unlike any other in the Atlanta area.
ZOOMA Women’s Race Series is a national series of women’s half marathon races designed to inspire women to live healthy and active lives. How do they do that? Scenic courses, upscale destinations, unique women-inspired perks, and a post-race party with live music, shopping and wine.
The ZOOMA Atlanta Half Marathon & 5K will take place on Saturday, November 26, for its fourth running in the Atlanta area. This year’s race starts on Chateau Elan resort property, and then winds through Braselton and Hoschton, quintessential small towns north of metro Atlanta, before finishing amid the vines at the resort. Participants will be awarded with a custom-designed necklace from Satya Jewelry at the finish line, then they will be ushered into a warm and cozy post-race party inside the Chateau Elan. Live music, shopping, massage, and wine from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly will add to the celebration of finishing a 13.1 or 5K race.
While ZOOMA Atlanta is meant to inspire a “fit girls weekend” getaway, families are also encouraged to attend. Chateau Elan will offer carriage rides, an appearance by Santa Claus himself, wine tastings, and culinary demonstrations on race weekend. The Resort is also offering an exceptional rate for event participants and their fans on race weekend.
