Due to COVID-19 and the danger of large groups gatherings, we have chosen to make the race this fall a virtual event. As a virtual 5k we will be taking a different format and will be challenging everyone to complete a 5k -- 3.1 miles -- on October 10th or October 11th, 2020. The race results will be uploaded virtually and you will still receive our great O4W5K t-shirt. Since this event takes place virtually it can be completed from anywhere, at any time during that weekend. Just like the previous O4W5Ks, all the proceeds from the event will go to Hope-Hill Elementary School. Over the past few months these funds have been vital to our school community. 

We know this news may be a disappointment to those looking forward to running with others, but we hope to keep the spirit of the race alive by snapping pictures of yourself with the T-shirt on and posting it to your social media handles with the hashtag #O4W5Kvirtual. We can still make this the race event of the year! Spread the word and have a great time!


The O4W5K is a run/walk through the streets of the historic Old Fourth Ward benefitting Hope-Hill Elementary, the traditional K-5 public school serving the O4W neighborhood.  The race starts across the street from Ponce City Market, at the base of Historic Old Fourth Ward park, and runs throughout the O4W, including Auburn Avenue where the MLK, Jr. Historic District is located. 


We have the best tees of any other 5K in Atlanta. You're going to love!
