2017 Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia Peachtree Junior

***UPDATE***

Atlanta Track Club has been in constant communication with meteorologists at The National Weather Service who have warned of the threat for unpredictable pop-up thunderstorms in the area of Piedmont Park for the next three to four hours. Because the safety of our participants is our number one priority, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia Peachtree Junior has been cancelled. No refunds will be issued but participant T-shirts and medals will be delivered to all schools that have groups registered for the event. Children who are not registered as part of a school group will receive their shirt and medal in the mail. There are currently no plans to reschedule the event. We are disappointed that weather forced this cancellation as Peachtree Junior is one of the Club's longest running events. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will join us at a future Atlanta Track Club event.

"We greatly appreciate the enthusiasm and interest shown by everyone towards the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia Peachtree Junior Road Race. To ensure the safety of all participants, we support the Atlanta Track Clubs decision to cancel this exciting event. We would like to thank all of you for your understanding and support towards improving the health and well-being of our children."

- Jeff Fusile, ā€ˇPresident, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia at Anthem
