Registration is now closed to run the world’s largest 10K in person; virtual registration still open

Registration to run the 2022 Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race in person has closed. If you’re a member of the Atlanta Track Club, you know you have a spot at the starting line. If you registered in the lottery, however, you’re probably waiting to see if you got a bib.

The good news is you can find out your status with just the click of a mouse. Regardless of which category you registered in (member or nonmember), you can type your name into to confirm your registration.

Don’t lose hope if your name yields no results — there are only about 60,000 spots for the 53rd running of the world’s largest 10K race. That doesn’t mean you can’t participate, however.

The track club guarantees a spot for everyone who chooses the virtual option. You have through May 31 to register at

Virtual participants won’t run on Peachtree Street, but they will receive a numbered bib and a finisher’s T-shirt. This is a great option for anyone who doesn’t like crowds or who forgot to register for the in-person event.

If your heart is set on climbing Cardiac Hill with thousands of other runners, you can snag one of the spots set aside for supporters of the track club’s Kilometer Kids program. Your $200 sponsorship fee automatically places you in Start Wave E. Plus, you’ll be supporting an elementary or middle school kid’s participation in a program that teaches goal setting, healthy habits and community building through the sport of running. You can sign up for this option at
