We are an active club and there is a chance to run with other members almost every day of the week. We gladly welcome walkers, plodders, shufflers, and joggers of all paces.
Over 100 Golf Cart paths to run!
Designated Runner Friendly Community by RRCA.
We have runners from all ages and walks of life!
Founded in 1981, our club has grown to be one of the largest running clubs in the Metro Atlanta area. With over 100 miles of cart paths in Peachtree City, you are bound to run into someone you know eventually (pun intended!). We have members from all walks of life, ages and abilities.
The Peachtree City Running Club holds its monthly meetings on the first Monday of every month with the exception of July and December. Meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. and are usually held at the Peachtree City Hotel and Conference Center (formerly known as the Wyndham Conference Center) usually in the amphitheater. Actual meeting place is usually announced via e-mail and posted on our web site.
The Peachtree City Classic consists of three different races: Women’s 5K, Men’s 5K and 15K Open. All races are on certified courses. The course was voted the Best Course by Georgia Athlete Magazine. Join us on 10/20/2018 for this year’s race.

CLUB GRAND PRIX – SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10
The “Trust Your Pace” Grand Prix will be November 10th at 8am at the PTC library. We will be collecting nonperishable food items for the ‘Real life Center’ as a way to give back to the community. Every grocery-sized bag will be worth 10 points. Don’t forget your club gear!
Each participant submits a 10K time, then slowest time starts first and the fastest will start last with starting times staggered so that everyone theoretically finishes at the same time. You will have to decide if your pace is correct or the runners around you are more accurate.
Real Life Center’s mission is all inclusive and focuses on not a “hand out” but a “hand up”. The Peachtree City Running Club looks forward to continuing our relationship and support for Real Life and the lives it helps.
“The Real Life Center was established in 1998 and has become one of the most highly respected and recognized non-profits in the South Atlanta Metro area.
Our mission is to walk with those who are hurting in Fayette and Coweta counties by providing a safe environment, sharing the love of Christ, and promoting long-term change. This mission is accomplished through an innovative process of holistic care. This strategy includes caring for each person physically, emotionally, relationally, financially, mentally, and spiritually.
We offer a one-year program designed to help families get back on their feet and to encourage them to set goals that will help promote lasting change.” reallifecenter.org
