Greetings Castleberry Hill Neighbors & Merchants!!
The time has come and we are in Race Week!! I am making every effort to assure that everyone is informed of The ATL 20K Relay & 10K coming to the neighborhood on Saturday, September 1st. The Pre Race Festivities will begin at 5:45am, The race starts at 7:00am and will continue through 10:30am.
There will be noise, there will be music, there will be cheering and laughter, and there will be feet pounding and sweat dropping to the ground!
The streets that will be affected and traffic detoured or monitored:
Walker, Peters, Nelson, Elliott, Fair, Stonewall, Small piece of Chapel near Northside Drive, Mangum off Chapel, Mitchell between Mangum & Elliott.
There will be a huge cheering area on the corner of Fair & Walker. The gathering area and start line will be at Walker at the intersection of Nelson. The finish line will be on Fair just outside of The Castleberry Inn & Paschals.
This is a City of Atlanta permitted event and we have been approved to use all of the spaces we are occupying. There will be APD throughout the course.
We hope that you will choose to come out and cheer for the runners and not be annoyed by the noise and excitement. OR…consider running in the race yourself or volunteering!! We are expecting close to 1,000 runners, volunteers, & spectators!!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly. Please also forward this email to everyone in the neighborhood!!
