About The Race
The Peachtree City Running Club and Tri-PTC have teamed together to host the 6th edition of the marathon relay. Once again, the race will take place at the beautiful and convenient Shakerag Knoll in Peachtree City. Teams of four runners will combine to run a marathon, with each participant running a 10K. The event offers a great opportunity to meet new runners and engage in the spirit of friendly competition. Most importantly, this race is one for runners of all speeds and experience—your teammates will all have different skill levels.
The race takes place on June 4, 2016.
Check-in begins at 6:00 A.M. Pre-race announcements begin at 6:55 A.M., and the race will begin at 7:00 A.M. Click here for a detailed schedule of the day.
The teams will be assigned based upon the speed of each runner. Each team will have runners of varying skill, experience, and speed. We try to assign teams so that all teams will finish at approximately the same time. Team assignments will be emailed on Sunday, May 29 at 5:00 P.M.-ish. You will receive an email with the information about your teammates and instructions for the race. Team members will have the opportunity to designate routes and create a team name (so start thinking of one now).
After the race ends, we will supply lots of food and drinks for participants, volunteers, and families (come to think of it, we will have plenty of food and drink during the race, as well). The award presentation will begin after the last team finisher. The top-3 teams will receive awards, and the winning team will have their names engraved in the coveted Peachtree City Marathon Relay Trophy, which will reside at Johnny’s Pizza in Peachtree City for all diners to admire your accomplishments.
Race Costs & Volunteering
To Volunteer: Putting on this race takes lots of help—from marking the course, to setting up the race, monitoring the race, and cleaning up after the race.

In addition, we have added the routes to the Map My Run app, and you can download the courses onto your phone before the race. The routes for the 2016 race will be the same as the ones for the 2015 race. We plan on marking the courses in the weeks leading up to the race. They will be marked in colored spray chalk chevrons on the cart paths. If you would like to see the routes from previous years, send an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
