AJC Peachtree Road Race: Maps you can use to plan your virtual run

Here's a look back at some images from the 50th AJC Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta on Thursday, July 4, 2019.

Usually occurring on the Fourth of July, the annual event will begin on Thanksgiving Day

This year’s AJC Peachtree Road Race will be like none before as participants will tackle the Atlanta tradition virtually. Instead of participants gathering at Peachtree Road and finishing at Piedmont Park, they’ll have the option to map out their own 6.2 mile route.

The Atlanta Track Club will create an app allowing participants to track their times and compare how they performed against fellow runners and walkers, but there are other options those joining the Virtual Running of the AJC Peachtree Road Race can use to plan their course.
