The registration lottery for the 2013 AJC Peachtree Road Race has come and gone, but there are still several ways people can sign up for the event. Participants can choose to purchase special charity numbers through Kilometer Kids or a charity partner through CrowdRise. Additionally, the AJC Peachtree Road Race number transfer system will remain open through May 31.
The Atlanta Track Club is offering a limited number of 2013 AJC Peachtree Road Race entries to benefit its Kilometer Kids program.
