5K Road Race
June 9, 2018
The Summerfest 5K has been run for at least 30 years and is one of the best loved neighborhood road races in the city.
Top 5 Reasons to Sign Up for the Summerfest 5K:
- The route winds through a beautiful historic, tree-lined neighborhood
- After the race, you can walk through the Summerfest Artist Market
- It’s an official AJC Peachtree Road Race qualifier
- You’ll receive a commemorative Summerfest t-shirt
- It’s motivation to get outdoors – Imagine your sense of accomplishment!
Best of all, 100% of the profit goes back into the Virginia-Highland neighborhood. Through its civic association, the race provides support for schools, the fire station, parks, tree plantings, and many other initiatives.
Sign up is available now ($30 per person; $35 after 4/15) at active.com. This race tends to sell out, so early registration is recommended.
Pre-registered 5K Road Race participants can avoid the crowds and pick up their race number and t-shirt early. Race packets can be picked up at Phidippides at Ansley Mall on June 2 and June 4-7 (no packet pickup at Phidippides June 3rd). Packets can also be picked up inside the Virginia-Highland Church, 743 Virginia Ave. (across from Inman Middle School) on Friday, June 8 from 4:30pm – 7:30pm (packet pick-up only, no race registration).
For children 7 & under, a Tot Trot will be held in John Howell Park at approximately 9:15 a.m., after the 5K race concludes. Sign-up ($10 per child) is inside the park starting at 8 a.m. on the day of the race. Each child participating in the Tot Trot receives a ribbon.
