Black Men Run and Atlanta BeltLine Partnership | Run.Walk.GO! Series

Black Men Run is proud to announce a first-of-its-kind partnership with the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership. The relationship focuses on the Run.Walk.GO! series which includes two 5K races, an 8k, and a 10K throughout 2015. The series, which incorporates various routes along the Atlanta BeltLine, draws participants from ages and fitness levels.

Working with the Atlanta BeltLine an exclusive medal featuring the Black Men Run logo has been commissioned to reward BMR participants who run in the race series. This initiative breaks new ground in the national running community and Black Men Run will be the inaugural participant in the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership’s Community Builders program.

“The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is excited about this first-of-its-kind partnership with Black Men Run – a great organization with a stellar track record and a national following. This group has honed in on an effective way to fight hypertension, diabetes and other conditions that plague the African American community. We look forward to welcoming their trademark enthusiasm and passion to the Run.Walk.Go! Race Series.”

This sustainable project is providing a network of public parks, multi-use trails and transit by re-using 22-miles of historic railroad corridors circling downtown and connecting 45 neighborhoods directly to each other.
