Each newsletter we will feature one lucky participant on why they race the Peachtree. This week’s feature is from Doug Allison from Lawrenceville, Georgia.

"When I was around 60, I decided I needed to add some aerobic activity to my daily workouts. So, with my daughter Emma’s coaching and encouragement, I took up running at a nearby park. At first, I was slow with little stamina, but eventually I was able to run three miles without walking... 

I entered the lottery for the 50th Peachtree in 2019 and was both excited and nervous to be selected. Of course, I’d been hearing about the Peachtree for years, but I was awestruck to actually be among 59,999 of my closest friends. The pageantry at the start, the cheering spectators lining Peachtree, the bands (to whom I always tipped my hat in thanks), and the enthusiastic volunteers made this unlike anything I’d ever experienced. At times, it seemed like I was moving faster along some stretches of Peachtree than I have by car...

Emma and I will be running the Peachtree this year on Saturday, July 3. We’ve both been training and I can hardly wait for another chance to run a race with my dear daughter."


Jack Hullings has volunteered on the course of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race for 37 years. “I work with great people that plan and stage the race and I join the volunteers, participants and spectators in the excitement on race day every Fourth of July holiday,” he said.

Celebrate with Jack and get your own view of the action by volunteering for the Peachtree this year! There are hundreds of opportunities to offer. Choose to volunteer at four exciting days of the Expo and/or TWO days of the event - July 3 and July 4! Volunteers will receive a different color T-Shirt for each event day.
