Things to do along the Beltline

In its latest attempt to promote social distancing, the Beltline is offering programming for at-home exercises

After encouraging people to stay home and to avoid the trail at peak hours, the Atlanta Beltline has now announced a free online fitness program.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, people have taken to social media to post photos of the busy trail. Well now, perhaps people have a reason to stay home while also getting a workout. Or at least that’s the goal, according to the Beltline’s website.

On social media, the Beltline asked people to avoid the trail at peak hours.

"Do us all a favor and avoid peak hours if you have to get out on the trail. Before 9:45 a.m. and after 7 p.m. may be less enticing, but it's a whole lot safer... for you and the rest of us," the post reads.

When it comes to staying safe on your walks and runs, changing up your routine may help keep you safe. Try getting up early to run at less popular times or take a route that will be less populated.
