2015 AJC PEACHTREE

ROAD RACE

Saturday, July 4th

WELCOMELETTER

Hello and Welcome!

On behalf of Atlanta Track Club, welcome to the 46th running of the world's largest 10K, the AJC Peachtree Road Race. Atlanta Track Club, our event sponsors, our organizing committee, the City of Atlanta and our more than 3,400 dedicated volunteers are proud to celebrate Independence Day with 60,000 of our closest active friends. We recognize that our signature event, the AJC Peachtree Road Race, has become much more than a road race ? it is an Atlanta tradition. With the introduction of some new initiatives, we hope to further enhance your 2015 Peachtree experience as one you will not soon forget!

Participant experience is our top priority. This year is no different. To that end, we work closely with the mayor's office, the city's police and fire departments, emergency medical service units and other agencies to establish race guidelines and safety procedures around weather and any other emergent issue. We ask you to pay attention to our Event Alert System (EAS), which is a color-coded flag system located at the start line, water stations along the course and finish. For more information, see p.13.

From all of us at Atlanta Track Club, happy training. We look forward to seeing you on July 4th!

Thank you to the City of Atlanta, our 3,400 dedicated volunteers and numerous partners.
