CIS is beneficiary of Sunrise on the Square in downtown Newnan

Sunrise on the Square Road Race was held Saturday, September 5, 2015. CIS was excited to partner with Main Street Newnan and Mike Fitzpatrick Ford in this year's race with proceeds from the race to benefit CIS of Coweta County. The Sunrise on the Square Road Race is a local favorite and has been held annually in Downtown Newnan on the Saturday before Labor Day for over 25 years. The race begins in Downtown Newnan and spans through "The City of Homes," where runners will catch a glimpse of our beautiful historic intown neighborhoods and commercial district. The race is a USATF certified course (new in 2015), where runners will enjoy the diversity of terrain, including long, flat stretches, and downhill and uphill sections. The Sunrise on the Square Road Race welcomes runners and walkers of all skill levels to participate. Runners are given options to pursue a 1 Mile Fun Run, 5K route and a 10K route.
