Here is some information from wikipedia.com.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race 10K is a 10 kilometer road race held annually in Atlanta, Georgia on July 4, Independence Day. The Peachtree Road Race was until recently the world's largest 10 kilometer race (an estimated 55,000 participants in 2007), a title it has held since the late 1970s. The Race's registration of 55,000 was surpassed in April 2008 by the Vancouver Sun Run which had over 59,000 registrants (although the Sun Run is two races, a 10k and a 2.5k; the Peachtree has just one), although it is expected to pass that in 2011 with the new limit. The race has become a city-wide tradition in which over 70,000 amateur and professional runners try to register for one of the limited 60,000 spots. The event also includes a wheelchair race which precedes the footrace. In recent years the race also has a special divisions for soldiers stationed in the Middle East.
Some folks on the sideline really get in the spirit of the holiday.
I know they have to be happy to see this.
This would be what they would have to do with me.
Yes, the winner is usually not from here. They travel from many countries to run in this.
I guess you have to be a runner to understand that. I just don't get it.
These folks really got in the spirit.
After you cross the finish line you get a t-shirt. Yep, a t-shirt.
Well, I found out yesterday that my daughter and son in law are running in it tomorrow. Well, she said she will probably be walking half of it. I wish them luck!
Anyone out there running in this tomorrow? I will be watching it on t.v. where it is nice and cool.
