Club History

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.

Monthly Meetings

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 currently held at Line Creek Brewery at 150 Huddleston Rd in PTC.  Actual meeting place is usually announced via e-mail and posted on our web site.

PTC Classic

The Peachtree City Classic consists of two different races: 5K and 15K Open. All races are on certified courses. The course was voted the Best Course by Georgia Athlete Magazine. Plan on 10/21/2023 for the race.

We meet at 7:00 PM on the outdoor patio at Partner’s Pizza on Hwy 54 for an abbreviated business meeting followed by Guest Speaker Jeff Galloway (see details below).  Optional Fun Run starts at 6 PM from the same location and goes rain or shine. The run is about 4 miles around Lake Peachtree, and the course is available here:  It’s a great opportunity to get some exercise, recharge with plenty of good-tasting pasta, and get re-acquainted with your running buddies! 


We start at 8 AM on the track at Riley Field. Everyone will start together without watches or other electronic devices, and run their own pace.   After each lap, draw a letter from a bag and reverse direction.  Everyone will then be stopped at a random time, and have to guess the total elapsed time. BONUS points –  Everyone will then be paired up (walker + runner) and the team that can create the longest word earns extra points!

PTCRC is in need of a trailer to pull behind a golf cart on race morning of the Classic on 21 Oct to put signs and arrows along the race courses.  If you have such an item and are willing to loan it for a good cause for a few hours that morning, please contact the Race Director, Shelly Collins, at678-343-8026 or
Justin Collins is now collecting used running shoes and donating them to a good cause called SNEAKERS4GOOD!!  So bring your shoes that you are not using anymore to any club meeting, activity, or event and Justin will be glad to take them off your hands.  They are donated to those who can’t afford a pair or recycled if they are no longer road-worthy.  And the club gets a donation from the company.  So it’s a win-win situation!  Donated your shoes and raise money for the club at the same time!  Complete details are available at Home (
It’s back again for the 19th consecutive year!!  That’s right, most of the Elementary Schools in Fayette County will be hosting 5K runs throughout the 2023-2024 school year.  The more you participate, the more fun you have, and the better chance you have of winning or placing in your age group overall.  So come check it out if you haven’t yet done so.  Remember, you can’t do them all unless you do the first one coming up on September 16.
