June 13-14, 2020
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 the perfect way to run a 5K while practicing social distancing and supporting a worthy cause. This year, we’ve upgraded our race shirts to technical tees! We’re encouraging all our runners to wear their race shirt and race bib while they complete their virtual 5K! Post about it on social media with #GROVEPARKMOVES. Make sure to sign up by May 23rd to receive your shirt before the event!
COVID-19 is disproportionately impacting Grove Park families already vulnerable to health and economic disparities and now experiencing immediate and drastic loss of income. Race registration, donation and sponsorship dollars will be put towards helping this community with emergency funding to weather the loss of income and prevent their displacement during this crisis.

Q: What in the world 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 either June 13th or June 14th. 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 June 14th.
Q: When and Where do I get my race shirt and bib?
A: We will have shirts and bibs available for curbside pickup on June 5th from 12-5 at Phidippides Running Shoe store in Ansley Mall and on June 6th from 12-6 at the Grove Park Foundation. If you do not feel comfortable picking up your shirt and bib, or if you do not live in Atlanta, we will mail it to you before the race.
Q: Do I still get a shirt if I sign up After May 23rd?
A: Yes, but we can’t guarantee that it will arrive before race weekend.
