“We are focusing on safety by cutting out the crowds while increasing our commitment to BeltLine communities,” said Rob Brawner, Atlanta BeltLine Partnership executive director. “We encourage everyone who can to enjoy the Westside Trail, visit surrounding neighborhoods, and support the local BeltLine businesses that are so vital to our economy.”

As part of the Run.Walk.Go! experience, participants can strengthen neighborhoods along the Westside Trail by contributing to the food drive benefiting the West End Family Life and Community Center pantry.

Race entries support the important work of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership to empower residents in BeltLine communities by helping connect them with affordable housing, jobs, and a healthy lifestyle.
