Peachtree Road Race Recap

If you've been in the running community very long, you've heard about Peachtree.  60,000 people run this race every year and simply getting a bib can require some exertion.  Many sign up for Atlanta Track Club for guaranteed entry and others enter the lottery.  And then there are people like me who decide to run well after the lottery has closed and all bibs are gone.  But, Peachtree does something amazing.  They have a formal, legit bib transfer system and a friend of mine helped me acquire a bib which turned out to be a seamless process.

The big day arrived with some looming questions about the weather but one thing was for sure...I was out to have fun in this race.  After seeing my race photos from MarathonFoto (40 in all!!), they were a 'must buy' so I immediately knew this would be a video recap.  So here you have it...my Peachtree Road Race.

Have you ever run this race?  What did you think?

  1. You guys had some great photos! They cut Brandi out of my photos and me out of hers! You'd think they would put two and two together with two girls wearing the same duck float running side by side. :P

    1. Haha it was actually very simple...it was a cheapo visor from Michaels that I cut the brim off and added the 'spikes'

  10. I've never run this race, but when I ran the Atlanta Marathon last year, so many people raved about it! That's pretty cool about their legal bib transfer! You don't see that much! Glad you had a great time!!
