StacheDashTime to rock the mustache and man the maracas. The Stache Dash returns on May 3 in Buckhead  for more margarita-fueled mayhem. Thousands of sombrero-clad runners and Cinco de Mayo revelers will take to the streets in support of a great local cause, Atlanta-based One Love Generation.

The race kicks off at 9 a.m. with a start and finish line at Tin Lizzy’s Buckhead, charting a course down Roswell Road, Peachtree Road and Piedmont Road. Participants are invited to walk, run, cha-cha or Macarena along the 3.2-mile route. Costumes are strongly encouraged, and prizes will be awarded. The party continues post-run at Tin Lizzy’s with plenty of tacos and tequila to keep the Cinco celebration going all day.

All of the proceeds from Stache Dash benefit One Love Generation, a tax-exempt, non-profit organization that empowers youth to inspire positive local change through art, service and awareness. Check out more at
