Lift up beloved Atlanta BeltLine communities and connect with your neighbors at the Virtual Westside 5K/8K/13K. This year, as we celebrate 10 years of the Run.Walk.Go! series, we are cutting out the crowds and increasing our commitment to BeltLine residents and businesses.

Participate at your convenience in our reimagined fan-favorite and submit your best race time by noon on July 25 with the peace of mind that you’re social distancing. In addition, 10% of race proceeds will benefit the West End Family Life and Community Center pantry.

Your entry supports the important work of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership to empower residents in BeltLine communities by helping us connect them with affordable housing, jobs, and a healthy lifestyle.
