The Only Place You Can Get This Much Energy and Excitement for Free!

Susan Montgomery has volunteered for the Peachtree for 30+ years. "At the water stations, families can all work together at the same assignment and have a great view and place to cheer on family and friends! We have had several families with three generations of volunteers. It's a tradition in our family to either run or volunteer." she said.

Celebrate with Susan and start your own family tradition by volunteering this year. Choose to volunteer on one or both days of the event - July 3 and July 4! Volunteers will receive a different color T-Shirt for each event day.

Your Time to Shine

Here's your chance to perform the National Anthem at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race. 11Alive is now accepting entries into the "Oh Say Can You Sing" national anthem contest. The first place performer will sing at the July 4 race, and the runner up will have the chance to perform at the July 3 race. There is also a contest for singers 14 and under to perform at the starting line of the Peachtree Junior on July 2.

The deadline for submissions to entry is tomorrow, June 11 at noon.
