About this event

Virginia-Highland Summerfest 5K is back for 2022!

One of Atlanta's most popular running events, the 5K runs through beautiful Virginia-Highland as a kickoff to Summerfest arts and music festival. Great t-shirts are included as part of the registration as always! The race also includes electronic chip timing and a USA Track & Field Certified Course for Peachtree RR placement. Enjoy a free beer after the race, on us, and thank you for joining us!

Summerfest is the largest fundraiser for the Virginia-Highland Civic Association (VHCA). This organization is completely volunteer-run and relies on donations of folks like you! Proceeds from this event go directly to supporting community efforts of VHCA. Our projects include the renovation of Fire Station 19, removal of paid parking at the commercial node around North Highland and Virginia Ave, management of North Highland Park, coordination with the city on neighborhood priorities as well as spearheading improvements to John Howell Park (which you can learn more about here ).

Summerfest 5K 2022 Road Race will take place Saturday, June 11 at 8am. It will feature about 800+ runners winding their way through the streets of Virginia-Highland. A few reasons to sign up:

  • Official AJC Peachtree Road Race qualifier
  • Chip-timed race
  • Proceeds directly support the neighborhood through VHCA
  • Fresh, crisp shirt
  • Beautiful route that winds through a beautiful, tree-lined historic neighborhood
  • Awards

After the race, join in the fun of Virginia-Highland Summerfest and enjoy your free beer as you browse the artist market and listen to live music. Summerfest is a nonprofit event with all proceeds donated to Virginia-Highland Civic Association. VHCA is 100% volunteer-run.
