Want to start near the front of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race? Here’s how.
Run a race on a certified course – 5K, 10K, 5 mile, 15K, 10 mile or half marathon – before registering (March 15-24) and use your time to qualify for a start wave. The quicker your qualifying time, the closer to the front you start.
Below is a list of upcoming runs on certified courses, and results from these events can be used when registering for the AJC Peachtree. You also can use your time from either of the past two AJC Peachtrees or any other certified race coming on or after Jan. 1, 2009.
Please let us know of any other qualifying runs.
