History of the Atoms 5K

‚ÄčThe Atoms race was held from 1991 until 1996 (it was an 8K then, and wasn't certified), but then it stopped.  Mr. and Mrs. James Conner along with Bill Sterns and several others, spent a lot of time in 2005 bringing the race back as a 5K.  They managed the race from 2005-2009  There was no race in 2010, and Jenn Montes De Oca was kind enough to take over 2011 until 2015.  Milan Peich headed up the effort in 2016, and Brian Zimmermann will take the lead for 2017.

The Atoms 5K course was certified by the USATF in March of 2013 and is valid until 2023.
