What's new for the 2017 Mayor's Corporate Challenge?  Green Space!  

It’s Quite Possibly, the only Authentic Mayor’s Corporate Challenge 5K Race!

  • Alpharetta’s Mayor, David Belle Isle, won the 2015 Mayor's Corporate Challenge! (male, 40-49) with a time of 22:23
  • David went on to win the 2015 Lion Heart's Heart & Sole 5K and the 2015 Shamrock'n Roll 10K.

Thanks to the Alpharetta Rotary's generous corporate sponsors, last year’s event raised over $150,000 which were used to support non-profit organizations that make a difference in the lives of homeless children, mothers and families by providing transition housing, life skills training, budgeting and vocational training. 
Local charities that benefited directly from the funds raised were North Fulton Community Charities, Drake House, StandUp for Kids, Homestretch, Foster Care of Georgia, Lionheart School, YMCA, Boy Scouts of America, City of Refuge and many others. The funds also had a global impact on Polio Eradication, Literacy, Clean Water Projects and Humanitarian and Medical Aid.
Lace up your shoes or come out to cheer in beautiful downtown Alpharetta on August 24th and enjoy a night of running, walking, food, music and fun.  This event is a cooperative effort by the City of Alpharetta, The Rotary Club of Alpharetta and LexisNexis Risk Solutions.  Corporate Team & Sponsorship or other inquiries can be sent to
