Dear Northside 5k Registered Participant,

The health and safety of our participants, volunteers and staff remains the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership’s top priority. In support of broader public health efforts to contain COVID-19 and protect our community, we have decided to postpone the Atlanta BeltLine Northside 5k that was scheduled for Saturday, April 4th until this fall. 

Please know that we did not take the decision to reschedule lightly.  Our race partners have hourly workers who would have been adversely impacted by a decision to cancel the race entirely, and this race is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year.  We hope you will be able to join us in the fall. 

We will continue to monitor news and updates about COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Georgia Department of Public Health, and City of Atlanta to determine the best time to select a new date for the race. We will work to secure permitting and announce the new date as soon as possible. Your registration will remain in place for the new race date and we will keep you updated as progress is made. 

At this time, both the Westside 5K/8K/13K on July 11th and the Eastside 10K on December 5th are expected to take place as scheduled. 

Of course, this is not how we envisioned the 10th anniversary year of our Run.Walk.Go! Race Series getting started, but we still plan to bring you three great running/walking events during 2020. We love our Atlanta community and our thoughts are with those affected by the virus here and around the world. We thank you for your support of the Atlanta BeltLine project and the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership during this challenging time. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to us via email at

All the Best,

Alice g Weston

2020 marks a decade of the Atlanta BeltLine Run.Walk.Go! Race Series! The 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!

We are returning to the Northside for the second year! Same course and location starting and ending at the green by the Monroe Apartment Homes, and making extensive use of the beautiful Northside Trail. Hundreds of participants – from avid runners to families with pets and strollers – will run/walk along the trail, passing Bobby Jones Golf Course, Bitsy Grant Tennis Center and beautiful Tanyard Creek along the way. Come join us for the first race of 2020!
