2013 Atlanta BeltLine Eastside 10K

The Biggest Running Series Event of the Year!

A Peachtree qualifying event and a whole lot of fun, the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside 10k run/walk showcases the new Eastside Trail through Inman Park, Midtown, Old Fourth Ward, Poncey Highland, and Virginia Highland.

Participants will pass by the new Historic Fourth Ward Park and Skatepark, take in beautiful vistas of downtown and Midtown Atlanta, travel an off-road stretch of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor, and enjoy a jaunt through Piedmont Park.

The College Alumni Tailgate Challenge and Neighborhood Challenge make this event a unique and fun way to celebrate and have some fun. Last year’s Eastside 10K sold out prior to the event. We recommend advance registration, as we cannot guarantee race day registrations will be available.
