This year’s Summerfest 5K Road Race will take place the morning of Saturday June 4 and will feature 1,500+ runners winding their way through the streets of Virginia-Highland. The race, which is now an official qualifying race for the Peachtree Road Race, features electronic chip timing and runners are encouraged to register for the race in advance. This race often closes out quickly, so we encourage early registration.
We will be taking race day registrations this year on June 4 from 6:30 A.M. to 7:30 A.M. at the Yeah! Burger parking lot 1017 N. Highland Ave., Atlanta 30306.
