Saturday, October 21, 2017


About the Race

The Peachtree City Classic consists of three different races: Women’s 5K, Men’s 5K, and 15K Open. All races are on certified courses.

Races are run mostly on paved golf cart paths that will take you through the green belt areas, by lakes, through small tunnels, across bridges and on the scenic routes through the planned community of Peachtree City. The course was voted the Best Course by Georgia Athlete Magazine. For the past 35 years the Peachtree City Classic has offered a Men’s 5K, a Women’s 5K and a 15K race.  

“The Classic” is not only a quality race it is also a beautiful one, running through the woods, the greenbelts, the tunnels and on the cart paths of Peachtree City, GA.  Nearly 80% of our participants each year are returning which speaks volumes about the quality of this race.
