In an effort to create clarity for our participants and make the registration process for the AJC Peachtree Road Race more efficient, Atlanta Track Club is building a database of "Official AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Events." Participating races will be listed on Atlanta Track Club's website.
To be listed an official AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Event your race must meet the following standards:
- Starting in 2020, only 5K and 10K USATF certified road race courses
- Provide Atlanta Track Club with link to official results
- Provide Atlanta Track Club no fewer than two (2) opportunities to promote AJC Peachtree Road Race registration to participants in your race
- Refer to the event as its official title, "AJC Peachtree Road Race" in all communications
As an official AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Event you will receive the following from Atlanta Track Club:
- Permission to use unaltered "Official AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Event" name and logo in marketing and race materials
- Designation as "AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Event" on race calendar at www.atlantatrackclub.org
- Inclusion on "AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Events" page on www.atlantatrackclub.org
- Possible inclusion in drop down menu in AJC Peachtree Road Race registration* (see specific details below)
To be considered for the AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Event Program, please complete and submit the short form below. If you decide not to become an official AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Event but your race is on a USATF certified road course, registrants may still submit results from your event during registration but you cannot use descriptors that list the race as an official qualifier in any marketing or race operations materials. In order to ensure accuracy in our performance based start wave placements, we are unable to accept results from virtual events, cross country races, track meets, or split times.
- If you have any questions concerning the AJC Peachtree Road Race Official Qualifying Event Program please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
*Events must be registered with Atlanta Track Club by February 1 to possibly be included on the registration for that year's AJC Peachtree Road Race. Races that submit after February 1 will be listed on Atlanta Track Club's website and placed on the registration in the following year.
Due to limitations with our current registration provider, only 100 non-Atlanta Track Club races will be displayed during the registration process in March. Atlanta Track Club will select races for inclusion based off how many Peachtree participants used that race as their official qualifier in 2019 registration.
Whether your race is part of the registration form or not, it is still considered a qualifying race and is still listed on our website. If participants choose to use your race as their qualifier, they can simply choose the Other category and type your race name in. It is important that they enter your race name exactly as it is listed on the official results.
