Peachtree City Classic 5K, 15K and 20K
For the past 36 years the Peachtree City Classic has offered a Men's 5K, a Women's 5K and a 15K race. The Classic is not only a quality race it is also a beautiful one, running through the woods, the greenbelts, the tunnels and on the cart paths of Peachtree City, GA. Nearly 80% of our participants each year have run previous Classics, which speaks volumes about the quality of this race.
This year for just the third year, participants will be able to compete in the "Peachtree City Classic 20K" by running in both a 5K and the 15K and competing in awards for a combined 20K time. If you can complete one of the 5K's in 40 minutes or less, you can simply jump into the 15K start making you eligible to win awards in the 20K. If you are planning to run the 20K you must register for only the 20K. Registration in the 20K will be limited to a 250 runner field. Do you have the stuff to compete in both back to back?
20 K finishers will again receive a special commemorative "Classic 20K" medal in recognition of completing the challenge of the Classic 20K.
There is a cap on ALL races this year so don't miss out, register early. And if you have a corporate, school or church team, register online in the "Orange Theory Fitness Corporate Challenge" for a extra discount of $5 off the current price. Teams must be composed of 5 or more.
