Register to Race


Runners and Walkers,

Based on conversations with the City of Atlanta, we will not be issued a permit for the Hotlanta Half Marathon and 5k this June 2021.

However, we know many of you still want to participant in some way and “continue the tradition”, so we will have opened up registration for a virtual event for both our half marathon and 5k.

Both events will earn the same soft, comfortable short-sleeved shirt similar to past races, and we have event-specific medals.

All race packets will be mailed to you at no additional cost.

Participants can run their event at any point between May 29th, 2021 and June 6th, 2021.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we all work through these challenging times. Please do all possible to be safe and healthy.

We look forward to racing with you again soon.

The Tradition Continues…

The Hotlanta Half and 5k Team

More information and Registration


The HOTLANTA Half Marathon continues its tradition of bringing the love of running to the best of Atlanta! The journey of Atlanta landmarks kicks off at Atlanta’s Pemberton Place – World of Coca-Cola, winding runners through the streets and onto the vista views of the city along the Beltline. Just when you think the course couldn’t get any better, you will pass through historic Piedmont Park and pay homage to the Olympians as you run by Centennial Park. Let your excitement shine right along with the sun beaming off Georgia’s gold capital building as you cruise back to the finish line at Pemberton Place.
