Due to the threat of winter weather, the 2016 Peachtree City 8K & 15K has been cancelled.
Safety is Atlanta Track Club’s top priority. As you are aware, a winter storm is expected to bring heavy rain, snow, wind and the threat of icy conditions across metro Atlanta. Atlanta Track Club has been in contact with the National Weather Service and AFCEMA. With the potential for ice forming both on the roads and the race course paths, as well as the number of registered participants traveling from the northern suburbs, we have chosen to cancel the event as a precaution in an effort to keep participants and volunteers safe.
Non-members who paid a registration fee will receive a refund on the credit card used during registration. Please note, donations to Kilometer Kids are non-refundable.
The cancellation of the Peachtree City 8K & 15K will not adversely affect Grand Prix Standings or participants vying for the David Jordan Award. The event will be removed from the schedule and the total number of 2016 Grand Prix races will drop from 11 to 10.
Join Atlanta Track Club, in partnership with the Peachtree City Running Club, for the second stop on the 2016 Grand Prix Series for the Peachtree City 8K & 15K. This event starts and finishes at Frederick Brown Amphitheater, and the course includes golf cart paths, wooded areas, bridges and tunnels.
