Microsoft Peachtree Junior is an event for kids of all ages to experience the pageantry, prestige and excitement of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution 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 Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race. The Mile is open to kids ages 6-14, and the Dash is open to kids ages 14 & under.

We have lots of family fun in store for you at Microsoft Peachtree Junior:

  • Microsoft is onsite hosting two exciting STEM activities!
  • Our Track & Field Zone will have mini hurdles, standing broad jump, agility ladders, and more!
  • Photo op wall, where you can "pose with the peaches," stand on the Microsoft Peachtree Junior podium, and commemorate your morning with a fun family photo.
  • "Dash" it up! Mile participants can make their way to the Meadow after their race to test their speed at 50 meters. See timeline below.
  • Mile Awards Ceremony on the main stage for top 3 in each age group (6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14).

Safety is our top priority at Microsoft Peachtree Junior. The following measures are taken for our mile participants:

  • Over 60 course monitor volunteers and police officers to make sure participants stay on track and move safely down the course
  • Lead (bicyclist or police motorcycle) and a sweep volunteer for each wave, ensuring that all participants finish safely
  • Secure Child Pickup Area after the finish line, where we will hold your child until you arrive.

For the safety and enjoyment of all participants, parents are not allowed on the Mile course.


All Mile registrants will be timed and unofficial results will be posted Sunday evening.

The timing device for this event is the Chronotrack single use B-tag. In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your child's bib is...

  • Clearly visible on the front of the torso
  • Unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  • Pinned in all four corners
  • Not covered (jackets, fuel belts, etc.)
  • If you do not wish to have your child timed, you may peel off the timing device or simply bend it several times.

Atlanta Track Club is a member organization of both the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) & USA Track & Field (USATF) and adheres to the guidelines and rules of competition in the events Atlanta Track Club conducts & provides..


The online registration deadline is July 1 at 11:59 p.m. Race day registration will be available if the event has not sold out.

An awards ceremony will be held and awards given to the top 3 in the Mile for each age: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14. Awards will be based on chip time only. Your child's bib is color-coded and marked with their age. Please ensure that your child is wearing the correct age on their bib.
