Atlanta Beltline Basics include Community Activities Part Two
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 Southwest 5K to be held on July 14, 2012. The Run/Walk will follow the Beltline Southwest Trail, through the historic West End and the Westview neighborhoods.
The race course will introduce participants to local parks and allow them to enjoy a 3/4 mile section directly within the Atlanta Beltline Corridor. 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 $30. 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 Southwest 5K today!
Have a happy day -
