IMPORTANT ROAD CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT

There are several events happening in downtown Atlanta on Sunday that will affect the walking route. The Hawks have a 3 p.m. game at Philips Arena that will affect traffic before and after the Hunger Walk/Run.

The following road closures will impact your ability to access the parking lots north and east of 755 Hank Aaron Drive: Green, Blue, Gold and Orange lots.

  • Closing at 1:30pm- 2:30pm - Hank Aaron Drive / Capitol Avenue between Fulton Street and Georgia Avenue / Ralph David Abernathy Jr. Drive.
  • Closing at 1:30pm-3:30pm - Ralph David Abernathy Jr. Blvd/Georgia Ave, S.E., for the starting/finish line of the race.

>> We suggest that all participants plan to arrive at 755 Hank Aaron Drive before 1:30pm, to allow time for parking and getting to the event (the Walk/Run starts at 2:00pm). We anticipate the parking lots in the immediate vicinity of 755 Hank Aaron Drive will be completely full around this time. Once these lots fill, the only available parking will be on the west side of I-75/85, on Central Avenue and Pryor Street, or in the private pay parking lots available in the vicinity of 755 Hank Aaron Drive primarily south and west of the stadium.

>> Please note the Walk/Run starting line has shifted over to Ralph David Abernathy Jr. Blvd/Georgia Ave, S.E., just south of the Green Lot. The Walk/Run starts at 2:00pm. (Please see site map for more detail)
