Having undertaken a thorough and professional, strategic review, during which we assessed a wide variety of options to maximize the value of the Atlanta Steeplechase, the Board of Stewards has concluded to make the 2017 races its last event. This hard thought out decision is the best path forward for the Atlanta Steeplechase, its suppliers, the charity, and its patrons.
Numerous trends in the sporting industry, but particularly in the Steeplechasing structure, have changed. The customer experience and the charitable donations are what make it all worthwhile.
We want to thank everyone for a fantastic 52 years of the Atlanta Steeplechase.
