Vinings Downhill 5k Race

On August 12, 2023, an anticipated 2,000 runners will gather to compete in the 2023 Vinings Downhill 5K race. This is the Vinings Cumberland Rotary Club's 26th year of hosting this race to benefit children in need.  We call it a "Run for the Kids"!  We are a Peachtree Race qualifier and we have raised over $1.5 M for children's causes.  Registration is open and you or your organization can become a sponsor to help in our cause.  Please visit to register and to learn more.

The Vinings Down Hill 5K course begins at the top of Mt. Wilkinson, winds around the Cumberland Mall area, and ends at the Lovett School (280-foot net drop). 

Despite the name of the race, well, it’s “not quite” all down hill…there are 3 hills to climb throughout the race – at the half-mile mark, during the second mile and during the last half-mile. There are also 3 really amazing down hill sections that make up for those climbs!

There is also a Kids 1K Fun Run and a fun Doggie Dash & Costume Contest!

Our event includes a huge post race party at Vinings Jubilee with awards, music, great food and expo.
