Two Decades Later, Another GA 400 Four Miler SuccessPosted Nov 18, 2013 by Bert Brantley, Deputy Executive Director
In 1993, thousands of runners took to the streets on the newly completed GA 400 extension to commemorate this new travel option – one that would open up access to hundreds of thousands of commuters in the coming years. Yesterday, almost 2,000 runners did it again – this time to commemorate the keeping of a promise – the closure of the toll this week as the bond debt is repaid.
Our congratulations to all the participants who came out to the Georgia Games race, and our thanks to those who took this opportunity to provide a donation to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Strong4Life program. Ten members of Team SRTA were excited to be right there running alongside of you, and many more cheering you on from the toll booths, water station and the finish line.
Remember, there are just 5 days to go before the tolls officially end, on Friday, November 22. Find the latest information on toll demolition, construction activities and more here, and you can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
