Thanks to everyone who came out to Stoveworks on Saturday for an incredible Atlanta BeltLine Eastside 10K, presented by Delta Air Lines! With over 1,600 registered runners, this was our largest Eastside 10K ever, and participants enjoyed mild weather for early December. Thanks to the incredible volunteers who came out in force to help make our event a success. Thanks also to the Atlanta Music Project youth choir for performing the National Anthem for us, and special thanks to Big Peach Running Co. for their support of this year’s race. Other sponsors include REI, Astra, CLIF Bar & Company, Jeff Galloway, Kaiser Permanente, AJC/Living Intown, Kroger, Cigna, Icebox, Perennial Properties, SG Contracting, Sprint, TopGolf, VeinInnovations, and The Coca-Cola Company.
