AJC Peachtree Road Race T-Shirt Contest
One of the most celebrated aspects of the AJC Peachtree Road Race is the finisher’s T-shirt. Since its inception at the second running of the race in 1971, the T-shirt has been highly coveted by those who complete the race (and in the early years, it was limited to only the top finishers). For the 50th Running of the AJC Peachtree Road Race, we invited some well known Atlantans and Atlanta institutions with ties to the race to design and curate a design. Atlanta Track Club and the AJC will make a $5,000 donation to the non-profit of the winning designer/curator's choice.
Public voting to determine the winning design takes place on www.AJC.com/peachtree from March 1 until March 31. Limit one vote per day. The winner is not announced until the finish of the race on July 4, 2019.
The Peachtree 50
The Peachtree 50 is a collection of 50 stories spanning 50 weeks that will celebrate a different aspect of the race’s history, legacy and importance to the city. The stories will be published every Thursday through July 4, 2019 at Peachtree50.com
