Check out the latest developments along the Atlanta BeltLine, snag an awesome t-shirt, and burn a few calories - runners, walkers, strollers, and dogs are welcome!


This year’s Westside race 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.

All proceeds benefit the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership.

New this year...Are you up for our Baker's Dozen Challenge?  Do you have what it takes??  Push yourself to see if you are able to Conquer the Westside!  Run the 5K at 7:30 am then run the 8K at 8 am!
