I’d walk barefoot on the hot pavement from Macon, Ga to Atlanta for that number. I should arrive around 7am July 4th 2011!

My nephew Sam ” wong way” Woo would be the recipient of this treasure as he is thinking of running cross country this Fall for Walton high and his only excuse is it’s TOO LATE to get a number. He could run his first Peach tree with my brother Jon and this would absolutely close the deal.

I deserve a race number because I didn’t get chosen year before last in the mail in lottery. I did get a number last year and ran the race 13 weeks pregnant. I ran twelve miles the day I went into labor. I deserve a number because I love running and I desperately want to run in the 2011 Peachtree Road Race.

Did I mention that I ran 3000 miles last year and did so while pregnant for nine months? That is another good reason. ☺

How about instead of doing a twitter contest, you actually give them out to people who’ve run the race before, and had family members work at the AJC for 30+ combined years?

Thanks for the great comments, but this is a Twitter-only contest and you can’t win unless you respond on Twitter! Make sure to get your answers for today’s question in by 10p.m.

I ran this race for 10 years in a row. I stopped a few years back when it basically became one great big fun run. I saw thousands upon thousands of walkers, and just got disgusted. I also got sick of ruining my long July 4th holiday (take it easy the night before, get up at the crack of dawn the day of, finally get home completely wiped out).

It’s 50,000 people showing up for this. Why is that so special?

If I had an AJC PRR number, I would share this historial experience in the middle of Preachtree with my number flashing on my chest.

I deserve an AJC PRR number because all the people in group has their number except ME. I deserve one too!!! Please give me a number!!!!

The best thing about the AJC PRR is meeting many people of different cultures, that meet together as one family on July 4th. They celebrate walking, runnung (Jogging),
and talking during the race. I need a number to be part of this great race.

The best AJC PRR memory was after the death of my husband. My friends invited me to join them for the Preachtree Road Race. It was the most exciting event that I ever participate in. It was fun and up lifting and I needed that. The experince was fantastic! I have not missed a PRR since. So you see, I would love to have that WONDERFUL number…….
