Presented by Delta Air Lines, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership’s Run.Walk.Go! Race Series is the perfect way to get your “fit” on while exploring different Atlanta BeltLine trail segments. Check out the latest project developments, snag a race t-shirt you’ll be proud to wear, and burn a few calories. Yes, it’s a race, but it’s all about the fun – runners, walkers, strollers, and four-footed friends are all welcome!
The first “race” of 2018 is the Westside 5K/8K (8K option new for this year) on Saturday, July 14. This year’s race starts and ends at Lee + White in historic West End, makes extensive use of the Westside Trail which opened to the public in September 2017 and features an awesome after-party at Monday Night Garage!
The Westside 5K/8K is a “fun run” meant for participants of all fitness levels. But if you’re looking to take home the hardware, they will have race medals ready for the following winners:
- Overall M/F
- Overall Master’s M/F
- Overall Grand Master’s M/F
- Overall Sr. Master’s M/F
- Top 3 in each of the regular 5-year age groups (10 & under through 75+)
Overall awards based on gun time. Age group awards based on chip time.
The start/finish line area will be filled with energy, music, and refreshments. All participants will receive a complimentary adult beverage from Monday Night Garage. They will be chip timing the start and finish, and sending participants out in quick waves to ensure no one gets bumped around in the crowd. The 5k course has been USATF-certified.
Be sure to register by June 14 to take advantage of the early bird discount!
