Missed running the PRR for the first time in 6 years due to the birth of my son. I’d like to restart a new streak.

The Peachtree Road Race is the greatest 10K in America! My training tip is to get off the couch and build up to running at least 5 miles by July 1 – if you can me it that far the adrenaline of the crowds on Peachtree and at Piedmont Park will pull you through to the finish!

Haha I’ve typed this twice already. Third time’s the charm? New runner, first two 5ks this spring, time to upgrade to 10k. I’ve heard amazing things about the PRR (thousands of people, running through Buckhead, etc.) and would love to experience it for myself (with my husband too).

After 3+ years of running and weightloss, the PTTR would be my greatest challenge!

I was not selected in this year’s lottery but would love to run! My running tips? Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Additionally, find a partner to do your long runs with. That person will keep you motivated and accountable. Happy training to all!

It’s been a yearly occasion for me since I started running to get into better shape in 2005. Missed last year, and I would really love to get back into it this year.

I want to win these numbers so my husband can run his 10th PRR successfully! We didn’t get through the lottery this year (very surprisingly!) but would love to run! The PRR is one of the “funnest” races I have ever run! The energy there is unbeatable!

I missed out on the lottery this year but would LOVE this chance from the AJC to win a place in The Peachtree Road Race! I need to lose some weight and knowing I have to train for this race would be a great motivator. Thanks!

Because running the Peachtree Road Race is a great tradition, and my 15 year old daughter and I have run it together the last 5 years, and we want to continue our tradition! (It’s also a great mother/daughter bonding time!)

This is my 30th Peachtree Road Race. My son Jonathan, who is now 27, ran his 1st Peachtree Road Race 17 years ago with me and it would be great to have him run my 30th ! He has been training and he is ready to go!
This will be my 22nd year to serve as a volunteer!
Run Happy!

Pick me! Pick me! Last year was my first Peachtree. I’m from Texas and my husband is from Georgia. I got into running and racing and my husband said I HAD to do this race, so we flew out last year from Texas. The race was AWESOME and SO MUCH FUN! We recently moved to South Carolina and I didn’t think we’d be settled enough to be able to go to the race this year, so I didn’t enter and I’ve been kicking myself ever since! I would love to run it again, so please pick me! I only need one entry as my husband is a spectator, so I would vote to give the other entry to Kenneth Vinson – first poster above! :) Happy running everyone!

Bucket List : 1. Win a pair of AJC Peachtree Road Race numbers! 2. Give them to someone who actually likes to run 3. Sleep late the day of the race 4. After waking up have a bloody mary with my chicken and waffles while checking to see who won the race

This is one of the great things about Georgia! The spirit and energy of running the Peachtree Road Race is the best! I love it! No matter how many times I run it, it always gets better and better. Can’t wait to hear from you!

I made a committment to be healthier and put myself up for a running challenge. In one years time, I have done 10 5ks, 2 10ks, 1 4 mile race and 4 half marathons. I never thought I would even do one, and looking back to all I have accomplished it makes me feel proud to see how far I have come. My running has even inspired my friends to get out there and run too and do races. That’s what I think is the best part of putting yourself out there. That’s something I had not even thought of at first, but if my hard work has inspired others to do the same, I think it’s great! Knowing that has made me even be more accountable as I want to be that example and continue to be that inspiration. :-)

My son and I would love to run with my wife. She has got us running but never thought we could go six miles, 2 weeks ago just finished 4.5, so am pretty sure we can do the six. I have let the fear of not being able to finish let me miss one of the greatest Atlanta traditions. Thank you for the opportunity to enter when I thought we would never be able to get a number at this late hour.

Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it’s usually something unusual. But now I know why I have always lost women to Peachtree Road Race runners like you. I mean, it’s not just the uniform. It’s the stories that you tell. So much fun and imagination.

I did the PRR as my first race a couple of years ago and it was amazing! It pushed me into running 5 & 10ks all the time. Then I got injured and couldn’t run for awhile. Now I’m getting back into shape to join the Navy Reserve this fall and I would love to have a goal to shoot for. Thanks!

Not long after the Peachtree last year, I got into a bad bicycle accident that damaged my ankle pretty bad. I just started back running in February with the goal of running the Peachtree again this year.

I ran in 2009 and had a ball. Now I would like to run with my husband for our one year anniversary. I entered both of us in the lottery; he got picked, I didn’t :-(

I started running in January of this year. Since then I’ve lost 25 lbs and have run several 5k races. I’ve gotten addicted to running, and it’s boosted my confidence like crazy. Running the P’tree would be an awesome chance to push myself to the next level. Definitely itching to do this!

I have tried off and on to get in the Peachtree for several years now. Must be bad luck, because I have never been selected. I’ll give it another try. If I don’t get in, good luck to all the runners this year! Have fun!

I am an avid runner after 2 cardiac arrests! Peachtree has inspired me to run! I have ran each morning since 1994 when I had my first attack! Peactree is so enjoyable and at 70 I am still enjoying seeing my old friends and talking about and sharing previous experiences of the Peachtree Road Race!!

Thanks Peachtree Staff for an exciting experience!!

I ran the Peachtree last year with my son and his fiance. We had a fantastic time and promised each other that we would run together again this year. Unfortunately, we only landed one race number in the lottery. Thanks for the opportunity to win two race numbers through this drawing!!

I would love to win this for my husband. He just completed a weight-loss journey, losing 100 lbs. through Weight Watchers and running. Two weeks ago, he tested for his Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I’m so proud of how hard he worked to accomplish this goal. It would be a blast to do the Peachtree together to celebrate!

After losing young friends to heart attacks, my husband and I have made it our mission to lead a healthier lifestyle. We’ve changed our diets, incorporated better habits, and excercised. To date my husband has lost over 30 pounds in just 5 months! Would love to cap off our six months of living a longer life together by running the race! Good Luck everybody!!!

I’ve been running for about 8 years but recently was diagnosed with a bulging disc in my lower back. Bummer huh?? Through physical therapy, LOTS of stretching and great friends, I finally was able to start running again !!! It’s a slow process but I’ve been wanting to run the Peachtree for the last 4 years but couldn’t because of the chronic pain in my back… I’m ready to try this year !!!!! As a famous man once said “if you have a body, you are an athlete.” – Bill Bowerman (creator of Nike) an I’d love to add “…no matter how bruised and battered you are!!”

I’ve always enjoyed running the PRR because of the crowds and overall regalia of the day and since we’ll now be in town this year I’d love to get out there and enjoy those 6.2 miles with the other 60,000 runners! Thanks for another chance to win a number!!

I have run the PRR the last 2 years. I really wanted this to be something I do every year until I am too old to run anymore and then I will walk it! I love everything about the race…the people the environment and the unbelievable sense of accomplishment I feel from it!

I think you should pick me to win the Peachtree numbers. Just like Forrest Gump, I got up one morning about four years ago and decided to run. While I didn’t get up and run around America, I did get up and run close to a half mile. It also help me discover why running and smoking don’t go hand in hand. So I don’t smoke. Now I run. Sometimes I run very well. Sometimes I run very bad. But it doesn’t really matter because I feel so cool everytime I roll out of bed at 5am and go..rain or shine.

I have run PRR for the past 12 years and loved every step of the way. In January I was hospitalized with a serious case of pneumonia. For a while I wondered if I would ever run again. At the time of registration I didnt not feel as if I would be able to run it BUT thanks to good doctors and great friends that have motivated me along the way (friends who are running PRR as a team without me) I am back and running again. I have forgotten how to spend a 4th of July without thousands of my best friends.
