Due to the increasing threat of thunderstorms, we are canceling the 8K and 15K in Peachtree City. We will attempt to hold a 5K, weather permitting. However, if you are traveling to the race, do so knowing the event may be canceled completely. The cancellation will not impact the Grand Prix Series presented by Piedmont Healthcare or eligibility for the David Jordan Award.
