Didn’t get in to this year’s AJC Peachtree Road Race? Close to 8,000 applications were returned this year after reaching the event’s capacity of 55,000.
The Atlanta Track Club has made 100 slots available for $150 per entry to benefit the track club's Kilometer Kids youth running program. Of that entry fee, $117 will go directly to the youth program and $33 will cover the expense of the Peachtree entry. These entries are available only to those not already accepted into the 2009 event.
Those who purchase these special race numbers will be automatically placed in either Time Group 2 or Time Group 3. However, if you have the appropriate time documentation for placement in one of the earlier time groups, please be sure to mail this in to the Atlanta Track Club office once you have registered online.
