Atlanta Beltline Basics include Community Activities Part Four
Join ODAT Realty as we continue our series about the Atlanta BeltLine. The Beltline defines itself as "a 22-mile loop of historic railroad that encircles downtown and midtown Atlanta, with a radius of two-to-four miles from Atlanta's center. Over 100,000 people live within half a mile of the Atlanta BeltLine, which connects 45 of the city's in-town neighborhoods."
The Atlanta Beltline project has two separate but equal (no, this is not the intro to LAW and ORDER) components. The Beltline public component is the Atlanta Beltline Partnership whose mission is to reach out to the greater Atlanta community to raise awareness of the Beltline and raise contributions of money and of community support. The private component is the Atlanta Beltline, Inc. whose mission is to plan, implement and build the Beltline.
The Atlanta Beltline Partnership offers many community activities. Our focus today is the annual Atlanta Beltline Eastside 10K to be held on December 1, 2012. The Run/Walk will follow the route similar to the route from last year. The Beltline provides a slideshow of the November 2011 Beltline Eastside 10K.
On raceday, the Atlanta Beltline will feature a Tailgate Challenge in conjunction with the 10K itself. Basically the race will begin and end in Piedmont Park passing throught the historic Fourth Ward Park and Skatepark, Freedom Park and all the neighborhoods along the way. Post race activities will take place at the southeast end of Piedmont Park at Park Tavern, 500 10th Street.
The Atlanta Beltline Partnership will offer a comprehensive and complete map for the participants to show the route clearly as the date approaches. Participation is limited to 700 folks due to route constraints. Participants may register online. The entry fee is $38. plus a $2 processing fee.
Registration fees benefit the Atlanta Beltline Partnership's annual Fundraising efforts for Beltline programs that include the amazing Beltline Tour and other public outreach activities.
Don't miss the opportunity to be involved with a stellar aspect of good city planning. Sign up for the Atlanta Beltline Eastside 10K today!
