19-39 & 40 Over – START TIME: 11:00 a.m. (registration anytime between 10:00-10:45 am)
High School Players – START TIME: 1:00 p.m. (registration anytime before 12:30)
The player field will be organized where the top 10 players scores advance to round 2. Round 2 will start as zero first round numbers do not count unless needed for tie breaker. From Round 2 the top 3 players scores will advance to the Championship Round.
Instead of a set number of “outs” per round, each player this year will have 3 minutes to hit as many home runs as possible (worth 1 point each). A running clock will begin counting down upon release of the first pitch. The player gets one 30 second beak (clock stop) during each round.
Hitters will also be awarded a bonus Make-A-Wish GOLD BALL opportunity each round (worth 2 points). Players will receive as many Homerun GOLD BALLS until they hit an *OUT; P4 Foundation will donate $25.00 for each GOLD BALL hit for a Homerun to Make-A-Wish Georgia.
In the event of matching totals, the first tiebreaker will be the number of home runs hit in the prior rounds, if necessary, a coin flip.
*(OUT) definition: anything but a “Homerun” after the batter has swung at a ball
Georgia811 is gearing up for this year’s run to benefit the P4 Foundation and we are honored to be their charity of choice.
2020 Georgia 811 5K
Virtual Event: August 11 – September 12
Georgia 811 is hosting our 5th annual 811 Run/Walk 5K, August 11 – September 12. In an effort to prioritize safety during these uncertain times, this year’s 5K will be a special virtual event promoting safe digging! Participation will be free as we work to spread the message across various media outlets of just how important it is to contact Georgia 811 before digging.
Cost: The virtual 5k is free of cost, but we do ask that you share our social media message before and/or after completing your 5k. Those who share our social media message will be put in a drawing to win monetary prizes. All participants will be eligible to win our swag bags. Details below.
Location: Anywhere in the Continental U.S.
