It’s been a long two years of ATLiens adapting to virtual and hybrid events during the pandemic, but this year feels a bit more “normal.” The “world’s largest 10K” is right around the corner and in-person and virtual options were both offered.

You know it’s not the Fourth of July in Atlanta without the annual tradition, and this year - can you believe it - it’s the 53rd running of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race.

With the race less than one week away, we gotta ask: Are you race-day ready?

Whether you’re participating in the race or supporting from the sidelines, here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind this weekend for the 2022 AJC Peachtree Road Race.

How can I watch the race?

Those interested in watching the 10K from home can view the live race on WXIA-TV 11Alive. The local broadcast will air Monday, July 4 with pre-race coverage starting at 5:30 a.m.

Can I still sign up to volunteer?

It is not too late to volunteer! The Atlanta Track Club relies on thousands of volunteers to ensure the race is a success, and they are still in need of volunteers. Each volunteer gets a limited edition volunteer shirt. Sign up and learn more on their website. You can see the full list of volunteer opportunities here.

What road closures can we expect?

The entire 10K course is closed to traffic. The 6.2 miles of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race takes participants from the streets of Buckhead to the corners of Midtown, wrapping up in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park.
