VILLA RICA, Ga. -- Every year, Villa Rica celebrates its gold rush heritage with a festival, a parade -- and a 5K.
The 2014 Gold Rush Festival 5K will be Saturday, Sept. 6 in downtown Villa Rica. It starts at 8:30 a.m., giving runners plenty of time to conquer the course and then enjoy the 10 a.m. parade.
Registration is $20 and includes a race T-shirt. Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female finishers, masters finishers and three finishers in each age group.
