“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Atlanta Track Club concluded a virtual race was the safest option for participants, volunteers, staff and the hundreds of city and state employees, many of whom are first responders, who come together to help deliver the event to Atlanta each year,” The Atlanta Track Club website said.
For the virtual race, runners and walkers can design a 6.2-mile course of their choosing. The track club will have an app that will enable participants to track their times and measure their performance against other finishers. The Virtual Running of the AJC Peachtree Road Race will still be held on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26. Participants can complete the 10K between the hours of 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.
