*In-Training for Peachtree's Midtown Location is SOLD OUT.

This program is designed for novice and intermediate runners and walkers.  If this is your first AJC Peachtree Road Race or you are aiming for a top 1,000 finisher mug,  there will be all levels of participants and the training is designed to be adapted to meet your needs.  Training in a group is a great way to stay motivated and get encouragement along the way.  The weekly training sessions take place on Saturday morning at one of seven Big Peach Running Co. locations throughout the metro Atlanta area with additional mid-week workouts.  Training programs are geared toward adult participants 18 and older. However, participants as young as 16 may participate as long as they are accompanied by a parent and the parent has signed a release acknowledging the risks involved. Both the parent and child would need to be registered for the program.
