AJC Peachtree Road Race memories

The 2021 AJC Peachtree Road Race will be in-person again. The race will occur on July 3 and 4, the latter of which is its traditional date. Another tradition that hasn’t gone away is the annual national anthem contest.

11Alive and the Atlanta Track Club are seeking contestants to perform at the start line of the world’s largest 10K. Additionally, there will be a chance for performers 14 and under to sing the national anthem at the Peachtree Junior start line. That race is on July 2. Three winners will be chosen this year for each day of the race.
