The Anthem Peachtree Junior is an event for kids of all ages to experience the pageantry, prestige and excitement of the AJC Peachtree Road Race. Held in Piedmont Park, the race will feature a Mile (timed) and Dash, with the Mile finishing under the same finish line as the Peachtree on 10th St. For the first time ever, this race will take place on July 3 in 2019 as part of AJC Peachtree Road Race experience, and will feature a finisher's T-shirt just as in the Peachtree the following day. After completing the Anthem Peachtree Junior, participants are invited to enjoy a post-race festival in the meadow of Piedmont Park to celebrate the holiday.
The Mile is open to kids ages 6-14, while the Dash is open to kids ages 6 & under.
