I have an announcement! I will be waking up (in my opinion) super-freaking-early on Tuesday, March 15, 2011. 4:55 a.m. is when my alarm clock will go off. I will spring to my laptop with one URL in mind: ajc.com/peachtree.
That’s right. 5:00 a.m. Tuesday morning is when registration for the 2011 Peachtree Road Race opens. It closes a week and two days later, but I’ve got a word to the wise: register fast. Registration filled up in 5 hours last year. Granted, they do have 16,000 more slots this year, but how do you know they didn’t gain 16,000 interested runners last year? And with the lottery system, I’m betting that many more will be hopping on make sure they get their ticket asap.
I wouldn’t hold out if I were you. Get those alarms ready!
