If this is your first AJC Peachtree Road Race or you are aiming for a top 1,000 finisher mug,  our In-Training for Peachtree program is designed to be adapted to meet your needs.  Training in a group, with all levels of participants, 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 six local running specialty stores 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.
