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.

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.
