The Atlanta Track Club announced that the AJC Peachtree Road Race would be virtual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The race traditionally takes place on July 4 but it was postponed to Nov. 26, with the hope that it would still be able to take place in person. Due to the rise of cases across the state of Georgia, the organization opted for a virtual race.
For the virtual race, runners and walkers can design a 6.2-mile course of their choosing. The track club will have an app that will enable participants to track their times and measure their performance against other finishers. The Virtual Running of the AJC Peachtree Road Race will still be held on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26. Participants can complete the 10K between the hours of 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.
Registration will remain open until Nov. 1 or when the race capacity of 60,000 participants has been reached. Registration fees are $42 for nonmembers and $38 for Atlanta Track Club members. Go to the Atlanta Track Club’s website to register and more information.
