December 2013 – June 2014
The Metro Atlanta Chapter of the UGA Alumni Association invites you to join our team in the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside 10k! We will also be competing against other alumni associations in the Tailgate Challenge to see who can show the best school spirit. Come out in your red & black to show your Bulldog pride and help cheer on Georgia runners! The event’s activities will also feature live music, free food and beverages, and various vendors courtesy of the Atlanta BeltLine. There is no cost to attend the festivities.
The Atlanta BeltLine Eastside 10k is a run/walk showcasing the new Eastside Trail which winds through Inman Park, Midtown, Old Fourth Ward, Poncey Highland, and the Virginia Highlands. Participants will pass by Historic Fourth Ward Park and Skate Park, take in beautiful vistas of downtown and midtown Atlanta, travel an off-road stretch of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor, and enjoy a jaunt through Piedmont Park. A portion of the BeltLine that runners will enjoy is actually a portion the Metro Atlanta Chapter has adopted. Be sure to look for the “Run Dawgs Run” sign along the adopted portion, near the Park Drive Bridge!
Which Atlanta area alumni group has the most school spirit? Let’s show everyone why Atlanta is “Bulldog Country”. We are encouraging all UGA Atlanta Alumni to come out and run, walk, volunteer, or just cheer everyone on. Your participation can help The Metro Atlanta Chapter of the UGA Alumni Association win an alumni gathering at a top Atlanta venue and Atlanta BeltLine bragging rights.

Registration fee for the race is $40. Don’t forget to select the UGA Alumni Association as your team! Runners with dogs and strollers are welcome to participate.
