PEACHTREE ROAD RACE BUSES - JULY 4, 5:30 AM
Registration for the club’s buses to the Peachtree Road Race is open. We are chartering two buses–a Party Bus and a Family Bus, and these buses will pick you up in Peachtree City at McIntosh High School and drop you off at the start of the race. After the race, the buses will pick you up at the finish line and return you to McIntosh High School. The cost of a bus seat is $10 for club members and $20 for non-club members. To register, you can reserve a bus seat and pay for the seat at http://ptcrc.com/bus/. Please note, your reservation is not confirmed until you receive an email from Kevin Killory listing your seat reservation. In the event that either bus is filled, you can be placed on a wait list, and once a seat opens, you will be given a chance to confirm your seat on the bus.
