The 16th annual ADA Memorial 5- and 10-kilometer and 1-mile road race is set for Saturday in Gainesville, marking the 27th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The event is held on the square in downtown Gainesville. Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the race starts at 8:15 a.m. Admission is $30, which includes a T-shirt.

Proceeds will benefit Access to a Better Tomorrow Inc., a nonprofit whose mission is to ensure Georgians with disabilities have equal opportunities.

Medals will be awarded to the top three runners in 16 different age groups and wheelchair divisions.

Music will be provided by Clay Christy the Brickhouse Mobile DJ with water, ice, fruit and snacks for participants.

The race course runs from Spring Street in front of the Arts Council Depot, through the square toward Brenau University and back up Brenau Avenue, then right onto Bradford Street on Ivey Terrace, and back around to the square.

Enacted in 1990, the ADA prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities and transportation.
