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 crossing the same 10th Street finish line as the AJC Peachtree Road Race. Participants are also welcome to join us in the Virtual Peachtree Junior option. The Mile is open to kids ages 6-14, while the Dash is open to kids ages 6 & under.

This year's Peachtree Junior will feature a race-by-appointment approach, thereby providing participants with a socially distant and safe experience moving through the event area. Atlanta Track Club will provide detailed instructions on how to navigate Peachtree Junior closer to event day. Choose your time slots in registration then stay tuned!

We have lots of family fun in store for you at Peachtree Junior. Stop by the Track & Field Obstacle Course (link map) in the Meadow and try out mini hurdles, standing broad jump, agility ladders, and more! We will also feature a photo op wall, where you can "pose with the peaches," stand on the Peachtree Junior podium, and commemorate your morning with a fun family photo. And finally, keep an eye out for Olympians Jake Riley and Abdi Abdirahman who will be making a guest appearance. Jake and Abdi placed 2nd and 3rd here in Running City USA last February in the U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Marathon to punch their tickets to Tokyo. Wish them good luck before they head to the Olympics!
