There’s still time to register for BuckheadRun!, the inaugural 5K race Livable Buckhead is hosting June 1 at 7:30 a.m. at Lenox Square mall.

The nonprofit is delivering on the health and wellness portion of its mission with this event. It follows BuckheadWalks!, a month-long walking challenge for residents and commuters May 1 through 31.

“This is the perfect time of year to get outside and become more active,” Livable Buckhead Executive Director Denise Starling said in a news release. “These events give people an extra incentive to take advantage of spring weather and start moving more.”

For BuckheadRun!, participants will run on a course that covers parts of the Path400 Greenway Trail and Peachtree Road.

A T-shirt is included with the registration fee, which is $35. Runners, walkers, strollers and dogs are welcome. Check in begins at 6:30 a.m., the race lineup is 7:15 a.m. and the race starts at 7:30 a.m. Winners will be announced at 8:15 a.m.
