Join us for the Virtual Atlantic Capital Community 5K- benefiting the Grove Park Foundation! This year we will partner with the Foundation to build a stronger community for our neighbors in Northwest Atlanta.
A virtual race is a perfect way to run a 5K while practicing social distancing and supporting a worthy cause. We’re encouraging all our runners to wear their race shirts while they complete their virtual 5K! Post about it on social media with #GROVEPARKSTRONG.
The hashtag #GROVEPARKSTRONG reflects the resilience of the Grove Park neighborhood amidst a global crisis. While disproportionately affected by the pandemic, Grove Park continues fighting for its residents and community, and we’re proud to provide necessary funding and essential aid to one of Atlanta’s most historic neighborhoods.
COVID-19 disproportionately impacted the Grove Park neighborhood which is already vulnerable to health and economic disparities.
- 75% of Grove Park residents work in the service industry
- 75% of Grove Park residents are renters
- 95% of Grove Park students depend on school for breakfast and lunch
All race registrations, donations and sponsorship dollars will help this community to recover from the pandemic’s effects and re-build a healthy community.

Q: What is a Virtual 5K?
A: A Virtual 5K is a race that allows participants to run on any course, at any time between the beginning and end of the race. Racers report their times online after completing the 5K.
Q: Where should I run?
A: The benefit of a virtual run is that you can do it anywhere and at any time of the day as long as you complete 3.1 miles in one shot on May 1st. Pick your favorite trail, neighborhood loop or try a new route. You can use tools such as mapmyrun.com to calculate your route before you start.
Q: How do I submit my time?
A: Once the race begins, submit your result here by entering your registration number and finish time, and uploading proof of completion (e.g. a screenshot of your tracking app or photo of your watch). Your registration number can be found on your registration confirmation email. Make sure to submit your time by 11:59 PM on May 1st.
Q: Do I still get a shirt if I sign up after April 15th?
A: Yes, but we can’t guarantee that it will arrive before race weekend.
