ATLANTA - March 8, 2023 -
Runners and walkers throughout Atlanta, across the country and around the world
can now sign up to be a part of Atlanta's greatest day. Registration for the 54th Running of
the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race opened today. This
week, it is open exclusively to the more than 30,000 members of
Atlanta Track Club. Registration for non-members opens next week on March 15.
2023 marks the beginning
of a new way to register for the iconic Fourth of July race. Club members will
get guaranteed entry at a fixed price of $42, and they will be placed no lower
than start wave M. Non-member registration starts at $50 and entry will be
granted on a first-come, first-serve basis as spots in the field of 50,000

standards for members and non-members can be found here. Anyone who signs up
for Atlanta Track Club membership prior to registering will be eligible for all
member benefits including the lowest price and the guaranteed wave placement.
Registration will remain open until June 4 or until the race reaches capacity.
"We expect a sold-out
crowd on July 4," said Rich Kenah, CEO of Atlanta Track Club and Race Director
of the Peachtree. "Whether you are getting ready for your first Peachtree or
your 50th Peachtree, we look forward to showing you why Atlanta is known as
Running City USA."
Held annually since 1970, the
Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race is a 10K running party
beginning at Lenox Square and finishing in Piedmont Park, where finishers are
handed their coveted finisher's T-shirt. Festivities for this
year's race will begin on July 2 with the Peachtree Health and Fitness Expo
presented by Publix at the Georgia World Congress Center and the Microsoft Peachtree Junior in Piedmont Park.
The Peachtree will include
an elite competition featuring some of the best runners and wheelchair athletes
in the world. The race will be broadcast live on WXIA-TV 11Alive and on Atlanta
Track Club's YouTube and Facebook pages.
