Do you love mornings and wake up early just looking for something to do?

We need two or three teams of folks willing to help us put up the “Burma Shave” signs along the Publix Marathon route through the City of Decatur. All you need is a vehicle large enough to hold some signs and a love of getting up at the crack of dawn. The marathon is Sunday, March 23rd and we start putting out signs at 5:30 a.m. We’ll even buy you breakfast when we are done and we dedicate this Burma Shave Rhythm to you:

Morning people are very jolly

Even at 5:30 a.m. they’re smiling by golly

Setting out signs before the sun’s up

Is exactly the thing that makes them jump!



Want to pitch in and give us a hand? Call 404-371-8386 or email lyn.menne@decaturga.com

The ING Georgia Marathon will be coming through the City of Decatur on Sunday morning, March 29 and we would love to have you participate! As the marathon organizers say “Volunteers are the heart and SOLE of the marathon”.


Thanks to everyone who has already volunteered to staff a hydration station. We are still in need of volunteers for the East Lake MARTA Station . Volunteers will have a lot of fun handing out water to the runners and cheering them on. To volunteer, go to www.inggeorgiamarathon.com and click on the volunteer link. Choose  Hydration Station #11 – Oakhurst. The password is COD.


Most importantly, Decaturites are needed to come to the official cheering station at Fellini’s Pizza on Commerce Drive on Sunday morning at 7 am to help cheer the runners on. In 2007, the City of Decatur won $10,000 for the Best Cheering Station and in 2008 we won $5,000 for the second best station. We want to reclaim our #1 title, so wear your orange and bring a noise maker, signage, and/or a musical instrument.  Let’s make noise so the runners remember our city. I will bring some cowbells to share!


Runners are going to vote for their favorite Hydration Stations and their favorite Cheering Section so we want them to remember us! Prize money will to the Decatur Youth Fund for children obesity programs.


For more information on the marathon, contact Cheryl.burnette@decaturga.com or 678-553-6573.
