ARC PRESENTS OUR FIRST 5k RUN

 

Atlanta Run Club and We Love BuHi have teamed up for the Buhi United 5k to bring together the community of BuHi. We love to celebrate the cultural diversity of our city and to promote an active lifestyle.

When a group of people gather with a common purpose, change happens- culture is shifted and passion becomes contagious. This collaboration and event are efforts in hope to spark new life on our own ground. This is bigger than running. It’s about empowerment, hope, and unity. 

The route will take runners through areas of Buford Highway, and will end with a celebration festival. All ages and levels are welcome, as this is a non-competitive event. There will also be pre-race festivities on preceding days to promote community engagement and race participation.

Early registration is open until May 31 ($40 per runner) and prices will increase to $45 up until race day. 

More information on We Love BuHi can be found on the organization’s website and social accounts (Instagram, Facebook).
