Planner Perspective

Everyone in Peachtree City has welcomed us with open arms, from the City Council and Convention and Visitors Bureau, to the Peachtree Running Club and Peachtree Fayette Sports Alliance. This is an amazing new location for the Divas Half Marathon & 5K Series, incorporating a beautiful city in one of the most established running areas in the U.S. The canopied roads and slightly rolling course lends itself to a great race venue.
