Runners, walkers, pets, families with kids and strollers — everyone is welcome! The 2020 race series also includes the Westside 5k/8k/13k on July 11 and the Eastside 10k on December 5.

Last year’s Northside 5k saw 800+ participants enjoy a beautiful spring morning run on one of the most beautiful segments of the BeltLine. Like last year, this year’s race starts and ends at the green by The Monroe Apartment Homes, and passes by Bobby Jones Golf Course, Bitsy Grant Tennis Center and beautiful Tanyard Creek Park along the way. A map of the course route can be viewed here.
“We can think of no better place to begin this year’s celebration of the 10th anniversary of our Run.Walk.Go! race series than the Northside Trail,” said Rob Brawner, Executive Director of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership. “Our 2019 Northside 5k was very successful and we look forward to an even better event this year. Thanks to all of our sponsors for their generous support of this year’s event.”
