July 5, 2011 by USA Post
Peachtree Road Race Results, On Monday, July 4, 60,000 people went to Buckhead to compete (some stronger than others) in the annual Peachtree Race. For some it is an exciting way to meet a very outgoing personality, for others it is a tradition of celebrating the Fourth. But others run to test the results of many days of hard training race. For Track Club in Atlanta, the Peachtree is a time to witness a rich harvest of another year spent planning.
The Track Club of Atlanta-based Buckhead is an organization of 14 staff members who put in the biggest race of 10 kilometers in the world, the Peachtree. The office of the club, situated in a picturesque house in East Shadowlawn Avenue, is decorated on the inside of the frames of the historic Peachtree Road Race T-shirts.
According to race officials, 951 people will participate in Suwanee Peachtree. The Track Club (or the operation of the club) has about 13,000 members spread throughout the metropolitan area, and stick to each year, shortly after the Peachtree. Throughout the rest of the year, the club has several races for all ages (members enjoy free 10 races) as well as training programs and health seminars.
A major benefit for members of the club’s track and guaranteed early admission to the Peachtree (but not the waves of the boot priority). About 8,000 members of the track club join the race this July 4th.
ATC marketing director Tracy Lott said that American culture is in the midst of a boom running. The economy suffered a fall and execution became an exercise accessible, relatively free, too, the public is very concerned with healthy living. One of the objectives of the club, Lott said, is for residents of Atlanta to achieve health and well being through the operation. The other main objective, he said, is to foster a community united in operation.
“It is gratifying when I see people in the training program achieve its objectives, the volunteers happy to support participants and runners of all abilities and levels to end his career and reach your goals in the line,” ATC Outreach Director Tina Klein says the club’s website.
Put in the Peachtree is no small thing for the nonprofit organization. “It’s like moving an entire city by Peachtree,” said Lott. The team of about 25 members of the ATC staff and volunteers are at the top of the preparation time (the committee began to prepare regular meetings in January).
Setting the start and finish lines begins Saturday, Publix food donations arrive at Lenox Square on Sunday, and while there are 3400 volunteers to stay organized. Port-a-potties should be parked, set up tents, signs posted, and water set (more than 600,000 cups). Lott said setting course would begin on Monday at 5 am or earlier.
