Plan Now for Success this Summer

So you’ve registered for the AJC Peachtree Road Race. Congrats on securing a spot in the world’s largest 10K! You’ll be joining 59,999 other runners and walkers at Atlanta’s biggest July 4th party.

Do you have a plan to get you to the start line feeling confident and fit?

If not, now is the time to start planning for your race. There are a few things to keep in mind when taking on the Peachtree – and it doesn’t matter if you are a first-timer or a veteran.

  • The hills. The AJC Peachtree Road Race is known for the 12-story climb called Cardiac Hill. And that’s not the only incline on the course. Incorporate hill repeats into your training to make sure you are prepared.
  • The weather. If you’ve spent a summer in Atlanta, you know that it can be extremely hot and humid. The Fourth of July is no exception. Make sure you hydrate properly and give your body time to adapt to running in heat.
  • The crowds. Because this is the largest road race in the country, you can expect a lot of company on the course. It is important to remember how many other people will be around you when you set your goal. Peachtree can be a tough place to set a personal best.
