BIG CROWDS ANTICIPATED FOR 2017 COVINGTON FUZZ RUN A s one of the largest participatory events in Covington, the 34th Annual Fuzz Run is anticipated to attract over 3,500 participants to the area on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Hosted by the Covington Police Department, the Fuzz Run includes a 5K race, 1-mile fun run/walk, and Mary Beth’s Bird Run (Dash). Runners come from all over Georgia. The race was voted “Best Race in Georgia” for four consecutive years by runners participating in the “Run and See Georgia Grand Prix Series”. With Covington dubbed The Hollywood of the South®, it’s no wonder why everyone wants to participate in the Fuzz Run 5K. The course goes through Historic Downtown Covington, along gentle hills, and past beautiful homes and businesses that were used in popular film and TV productions. As you run or walk, you’ll pass familiar sights from The Vampire Diaries, The Dukes of Hazzard, In the Heat of the Night, and over 60 other productions. The 5K race is a Peachtree Road Race Qualifier and begins at 8:30am, immediately following Mary Beth’s Bird Run (Dash). The 1-mile fun run begins at 8am.
