Ache Around the Lake organizers are excited to announce that Andy Millard of Millard & Company has offered a $250 cash challenge to the male and female runner who breaks the course record in their category for the Sept. 24 run.
“Being a runner myself, I want to see this race promoted,” said Millard. “We have several great running events in our area and one way to promote these is to attract really good runners. The Ache course is tough and hilly but beautiful. This is such a unique race and I hope the Millard & Company challenge appeals to these great runners and draws attention to our area for this race and other area events.”
Ache Around the Lake is an annual benefit for St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation that includes thr ee fun ways to offer support: The Ache (8K or 5 miles); The Ouch (a 2-mile fun run); and a Race Morning Brunch at the historic Lake Lanier Tea House. St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation will be raising dollars that will go towards the purchase of an Omnicell One-cell Omnisupplier for Anesthesia. For improved patient care and safety, the Omnicell supply system will provide St. Luke’s Hospital with a secure and flexible means of managing anesthesia supplies and medication.
Register before Sept. 10 at 9 p.m. (online only) for a reduced registration fee. You can register through race morning. T-shirts will go to the first 200 registered participants. Brunch tickets must be purchased in advance. Half of each ticket is a tax-deductible donation to the Foundation. Visit to register or learn more.
