On Wednesday, runners from all over the world will compete in the AJC Peachtree Road Race. It’ will be the 49th race. With 60,000 runners, the event has become the world’s largest 10-Kilometer race.
The very first “Peachtree” in 1970 was a lot different. The course had more hills and the race started at 10 a.m.
To find out what that first race was like and how it’s changed, we talked with Jeff Galloway, the first male winner of the Peachtree Road Race. Galloway is also a former Olympic runner who now coaches others to help them meet their running goals.
