Lace up those running shoes and join Livable Buckhead for our 2nd annual 5K race – this time with a holiday flair! BuckheadRUN! returns in virtual format, with participants running over an extended window of time to allow for physical distancing.

The virtual 5K takes place from December 1 to 12. Runners can complete the 5K course of their choice, then record and submit their time using any map or tracking app (e.g., strava, Applewatch, Apple Health, fitbit, etc.). All runners must complete their run  and submit their recorded time by 12 p.m. on Dec. 13.

This is a perfect opportunity to explore Buckhead during the holidays and get into the holiday spirit for the array of events and programming happening during “Miracle on Peachtree” celebrations. All runners receive a t-shirt and can listen to a curated holiday Spotify playlist while they burn a few calories – runners, walkers, strollers, and dogs are welcome. Prizes will be given for not only the fastest runners but for runners who show the most holiday cheer via holiday costumes! Additionally, any participant who submits a selfie during their race will receive a commemorative 5K magnet along with their t-shirt.

Race Opens: 7am December 1st
