Rotary Grand Prix

2019-2020 Peachtree City Rotary Club

 

The 16th Annual Rotary Elementary School Grand Prix begins with a test of will, with the first race being Friday evening, Sept. 20th, at Peeples Elementary and then the second race of the series being the very next morning at Fayetteville Elementary on September 21st! Do them both and you will be a leg up in the points competition while your age group competitors stay in bed resting. Don’t worry though, you get to rest and recover after that dual heat since the next race is on November 2nd.

How to register for the school races

About the Series

About the Series:  It is difficult to pick up a newspaper today without reading another story about the long-term implications of the growing childhood obesity problems.  Peachtree City and Fayette County are not immune from this problem.  Recognizing this issue, two active local organizations decided to take a positive step toward at least helping to resolve the problem in our area.

The Rotary Elementary School Grand Prix series of races began in the spring of 2005 with 5 races scheduled in a preliminary shakedown series.  The first full Grand Prix series season was the 2005-2006 school year.  The Peachtree City Rotary Club is the primary financial sponsor and hence the name.  The Peachtree City Running Club is the primary technical sponsor and will assist in the conduct of all races including the finish line, the timing/scoring, and the maintenance of the year-long winners’ database.

Last year about $100,000 was raised by the schools, and the series of races has become one more campaign in the fight against childhood obesity.
