ATLANTA – April 7, 2016 – Atlanta Track Club has announced enhancements to the 2016 Delta Runway to the World Contest in conjunction with the AJC Peachtree Road Race. For the first time, anyone who registered or attempted to register for the AJC Peachtree Road Race will be eligible to win the contest.
The winner of the 2016 Delta Runway to the World Contest will receive two round-trip coach tickets to Amsterdam, the Netherlands on Delta Air Lines as well as a four-night stay at a hotel in Amsterdam and VIP entry into the Mizuno Half Marathon on Sunday, October 16.
The Delta Runway to the World Contest is open to 2016 AJC Peachtree Road Race participants and anyone who registered or attempted to register for the event. The winner will be chosen through a random drawing at approximately 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 3 at the Peachtree VIP dinner at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta. The selection will be broadcast on 11Alive (WXIA-TV).
In previous years, only AJC Peachtree Road Race participants who received an all-silver race number were entered into the Delta Runway to the World Contest. The winner was then announced during the awards ceremony at the finish line – and winners had to be present to win.
Rules and regulations for the 2016 contest can be found here. For more information on the AJC Peachtree Road Race, visit atlantatrackclub.org.
