        Guessing you guys are registered in 2012.  I am running this year too.  BIG NUMBER 1.  First time.  Woo Hoo.  Any advice?


        Consistently Slow

          Go slow. 2 miles downhill. 4 miles uphill. Peachtree is an event  not a race. Enjoy. Watch for the bagels at Publix, the pastor with the holy water and the guys from Moe's throwing  t shirts to the crowd.

          Run until the trail runs out.

          Imminent Catastrophe

            Clay is right, it's the world's longest 4th of July party and not a PR course. Enjoy!

              This will be my seventh Peachtree.   I agree with the others advice; you'll miss out on half the fun of the Peachtree if you're running it for serious time.  Enjoy the crowd and the sights, it's definitely more of an event than a race.  Willy's also often has t-shirts, and getting a beer along the way is not unheard of either.  Big grin
