Thank you to everyone who participated in the third and final race in the 2012 Atlanta BeltLine Running Series® – presented by IDR! This was the largest race so far on the Atlanta BeltLine, with more than 1,500 runners! Some of the new elements introduced this year included the Neighborhood Challenge and the online “Atlanta BeltLine Running Series Community” that rewards participants’ accomplishments. There are even more exciting plans for next year!
