Run the Westside of the Atlanta BeltLine!

July 13th, 2019

Now in its 9th year, the 2019 Atlanta BeltLine Run.Walk.Go! Race Series is the ideal way to explore different trail segments while enjoying some fresh air and exercise. Check out the latest Atlanta BeltLine developments, snag an awesome t-shirt, and burn a few calories - runners, walkers, strollers, and dogs are all welcome!


This year’s Westside 5k/8k starts and ends at the Lee + White Development and makes extensive use of the Westside Trail, which opened to the public in September 2017. Hundreds of participants — from avid runners to families with pets and strollers — will run/walk through historic neighborhoods like West End and Westview with 8K participants continuing on the trail to Washington Park and back. We'll finish off the run with a free after-party at Monday Night Garage!

100% of race proceeds go directly to the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership.
