ABOUT THE RACE
THE 5K for tech lovers
The Hi-Tech Race Series brings together techies of all types - who enjoy family, friends, fitness and fun - to experience the epicenter of Atlanta’s downtown landscape starting and ending at Georgia State University’s Stadium. Thanks to our stellar sponsors, there'll be cool technology giveaways in addition to the Hi-Tech custom finisher medal. T-shirts available during registration.
The 5K (3.1 mi) route winds through a scenic view of Atlanta’s urban architecture, before ending up amid the former site of the 1996 Summer Olympics which has been newly renovated and re-imagined as the Georgia State Stadium.
Our course is certified by the USA Track and Field association, and for those wishing to use their finish times to enter larger races, our race is also an AJC Peachtree Road Race qualifier.
TECHIES OF ALL TYPES #UNITE
What robot takeover? The future will rock because techies of all types made it so. Let's meet back out on the course this June to celebrate the possibilities - together!

OUR WORLD IS
Tech should be, too.
We take diversity seriously. Our collective future depends on our ability to build a tech industry that reflects the breadth of people, cultures and differences that make our world so dynamic. Exposure to in-field opportunities and education is imperative for ensuring a diverse STEM workforce in the U.S. We intend for the Hi-Tech Race Series events to help increase interest in the tech industry, and to encourage diversity recruitment among tech companies and university programs.
Each year, the CTIF collaborates with a local non-profit to execute themed Hackathons for young people around Atlanta. For 2019-20, we are thrilled to partner with the Institute for Local Innovations to present the Hi-Tech Race Series Hackathon featuring teams of diverse high school and college students interested in tech careers. Your donations will directly impact the work of the Institute for Local Innovations and the number of students that will be able to participate in the Hackathon. The 2019-20 task is focused on NASA Technology transfer into the commercial marketplace, so we're really excited about getting kids involved in the creative UX/UI design process.
