The 53rd edition of the annual 10-kilometer race is planned for Monday, July 4. As in recent years, runners and walkers will have the option to run in-person from Lenox Square to 10th Street or join virtually.

This year’s theme is “There is Only One Peachtree,” signifying the race’s return to a one-day affair after COVID-19 led the event to be held over two days in 2021.

A panel of judges from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Track Club, and the Atlanta running and walking community have narrowed down hundreds of submissions to five. Now the public has the chance to decide on the winning design online in the poll below.

Voting is open through March 31, 2022. You can vote once daily. The winning design will be kept a secret until it’s unveiled at the finish line and the first person receives their T-shirt in Piedmont Park.

“This shirt is a badge of honor for so many runners and walkers,” said Atlanta Track Club CEO Rich Kenah in a statement. “The contest and the suspense over which design will win is a big part of what makes the Peachtree the Peachtree.”

Along with having their artwork across the most prized piece of apparel of the summer, the winning designer will win $1,000.

This year’s T-shirts are on display at Lenox Square. Visit the mall level to view the designs in person.

Participant capacity has yet to be announced for this year’s race. However, the Atlanta Track Club will regularly consult and meet with members of the Atlanta medical community to assess the present conditions. Event safety efforts will be adjusted accordingly. Safety measures are applicable to everyone involved in the race, from vendors and staff to participants and volunteers.
