The Georgia Marathon takes place every year in March, with the marathon and the half-marathon starting and ending at Centennial Olympic Park near the Dome MARTA station and Peachtree Center MARTA station. The race course goes through intown neighborhoods, including Inman Park, Virginia Highland, Decatur, Midtown and Druid Hills.
For 2016, MARTA train service will start at 5 a.m. with trains every 20 minutes. Looking for a place to park and ride? We recommend the Lindbergh Center MARTA station.
From the Red or Gold Line
Take a red or gold line train to the Peachtree Center station and follow the signs pointing to Harris Street from the train platform. After exiting the fare gate, follow the signs again to the Peachtree Street West escalator. At street level, turn right on Peachtree Street and right again at the first light on Andrew Young International Blvd. and walk about two blocks.
From the Blue or Green Line
The Dome MARTA station is slightly closer to the start and finish lines. Take a blue or green train to the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena station, which is one stop away from Five Points. Follow the signs pointing to Philips Arena to exit the station. After going up an escalator, turn right, walk up the stairs and continue down the street to reach the park (Philips Arena will be on the left).
