  2. This 3.14 mile loop around Atlanta's Georgia Tech campus is a very scenic and hilly run that offers a nice tour of the Georgia Tech campus and passes by all the school's athletic stadiums, Greek housing and the historic parts of campus. This is a great run in town, that many use to help prepare themselves for 5ks. Due to the hills, make sure to pace yourself, take it easy and enjoy the scenery!
