This year marks the 55th anniversary of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race. Rich Kenah, the CEO of the Atlanta Track Club, says the Peachtree is all about moving people in the same direction on the Fourth of July.

On Tuesday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Kenah explained that he’s never had the opportunity to participate in the globally popular 10k because he’s busy working and overseeing the race.

During the discussion, he also talked about the history of the race, shared insights about this year’s race and what participants and spectators can expect during the 2024 competition.
