The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership and Presenting Sponsor Delta Air Lines invite participants of all fitness levels to run, walk or stroll in the seventh annual Atlanta BeltLine Eastside 10K on Saturday, December 2, 2017.

The finish line for this year’s race will be on the newly opened Eastside Trail extension behind Stoveworks.
Runners leave the start line and head down Krog Street in the 2016 Eastside 10K.
Medals will be awarded to the top three overall male and female finishers. The top three overall male and female Masters finishers (40+), Grand Masters finishers (50+), Senior Masters (60+) finishers and top three finishers in each age category will also receive medals. Participants are encouraged to create or join a team, as awards will be presented to the largest, fastest, and top fundraising teams and to the top individual fundraiser. The Eastside 10K is a Peachtree Road Race qualifier.
Additional race day activities include a Tailgate Challenge in which local college alumni clubs compete for prizes for the most spirited groups. If your alumni club would like to participate, contact John Becker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
