2013 Atlanta BeltLine Northside 5K

Heating Things Up with the Atlanta BeltLine Northside 5K

The Atlanta BeltLine Northside 5K is a run/walk along the Atlanta BeltLine Northside Trail and through the beautiful Collier Hills, Collier Hills North, and Ardmore Park neighborhoods.

Because our last two races sold out, we cannot guarantee race day registration – so register soon!

Last year’s event really “heated up” with the Atlanta Police and Fire Department Challenge – watch  the video.
