Atlanta Beltline Basics include Community Activities Part Six
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.
Readers have raised questions about the three Run/Walk events from the Atlanta Beltline. Will there be water stops along the route? May I bring my dog? Are strollers allowed in the Run/Walk events? Are there restrooms along the course? Where does one park? Where is the closest MARTA stop? Answers to these questions and others about the three events, the Northside 5K on April 28, 2012, the Southwest 5K on July 14, 2012 and the December 1st Eastside 10K may be found at the Atlanta Beltline website. In addition, one may sign up for email notifications.
