The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is celebrating the fifth year of its popular race events with a new look and emphasis on both running and walking. Featuring two 5Ks, an 8K and a 10K, the Atlanta BeltLine Run.Walk.Go! Series invites people of all fitness levels to join the fun and festive atmosphere.
“With nearly 10,000 participants to date, the Atlanta BeltLine races have become a valuable fitness and social opportunity for runners and walkers of all fitness levels. These run/walk events also give Atlantans a unique way to visit some of the city’s most beautiful and historic communities, all within a fun, festive atmosphere,” said Atlanta BeltLine Partnership Executive Director Chuck Meadows.
People who register for all four races will receive a 20 percent discount on registration fees, and Atlanta BeltLine members at the sustaining level and up receive a hefty 50 percent discount off of registration. Details are available at beltline.org/races.
