About This Activity

The 2016 ATL Fall 5K Run/Walk is Saturday October 22nd. Our proceeds will benefit the Georgia wrestling community through Wrestlers-In-Business. The race course will be USATF Certified and will be held on Atlanta’s Beltline near Piedmont Park.

With all of the developments around Piedmont Park and the BeltLine, our environment is truly an event to be enjoyed by everyone.

No Refunds

The event is completely non-profit, that is also completely volunteer-run. While we appreciate that schedules change and things come up, we have a strict, no-refund policy for those registrants who find themselves unable to participate on race day. If you aren't able to participate in the event, we hope you will find some consolation in the fact that this is a fundraiser benefiting underfunded high school and collegiate wrestling, which we believe is a great cause! No transfers from year to year or person to person.
