2nd Annual Labor Day 5K River Run in the Georgia Mountains

Rhonda Hood August 17, 2018

Make your plans to visit the Georgia Mountains Labor Day Weekend and while you’re here, experience a really cool event fun for the entire family!  The River Run 2018 is an incredible 5K event held in Mineral Bluff, GA close to Blue Ridge, GA.

Labor Day is such an amazing time in our mountains.  There’s so much to do from fishing in Lake Blue Ridge or tubing or rafting down the Toccoa River.  If you like to shop, there’s downtown Blue Ridge, GA where you’ll find a variety of eclectic shops as well as an array of fine or casual dining.  If that’s not enough, how about visiting the Blue Ridge Arts Center in downtown.  They always have a cool art show of some kind.  Again, if it’s laid-back mountain fun, you’re seeking…come to the Georgia Mountains and learn how to enjoy the mountain life!

Come out to the 2nd Annual River Run 5K and Fun Run at Horseshoe Bend Park in Mineral Bluff, GA.
