A look back at the historical Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race T-shirts, starting with the 1970s! 📅⬅️

🍑 1970 - During the first year of the race, modest race resources did not allow for the presentation of a Peachtree Road Race T-shirt. However, on July 2, 1989, just before the 20th running of the Peachtree, Atlanta Track Club re-assembled 90 of the original 110 finishers and 10 or so volunteers from the inaugural race in 1970 to present an "Original 110" t-shirt, filling the void of having no shirt in 1970.

🍑 1971 - 1973 - This was the first year the race featured a shirt, with the help of Carling Brewing Company’s sponsorship, and remained the shirt design for the next few years. Tim Singleton, Peachtree Road Race Founder, said the idea of awarding race finishers with a T-shirt brought a unique experience and proved to others that those who dawned the shirt completed the entire 10K course.

🍑 1974 - 1975 - Carling began brewing Tuborg beer under license from the Danish brewer, and the race was changed to the Tuborg Peachtree Road Race.

🍑 1976 - 1978 - This was the beginning of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (at the time, known as “The Atlanta Journal and The Atlanta Constitution”) sponsorship, which served as a new era for the race.

🍑 1979 - The 10th anniversary of the Peachtree. Tommy Owens, an official race starter of the race, said “The Peachtree Road Race T-shirt is recognizable around the world because there is something special, a connection there.”

On July 4th, 2024, the 55th running of the Peachtree will continue the tradition of presenting the T-shirt to all race finishers, keeping the design a surprise until runners and walkers cross the finish line. Your design could be on this year’s shirt worn by tens of thousands of runners and walkers all over the world, and the top three artists will receive a prize purse of up to $10,000!

Submit your design before February 9th at https://www.atlantatrackclub.org/t-shirt-contest

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, which takes place every Sept. 15 - Oct. 15, we’re highlighting prominent Hispanic runners who made an impact in Atlanta, such as by winning the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race!

In 1990, Dionicio Cerón of Mexico took home the Peachtree victory at 28:23! That same year, he achieved the world record in the half marathon at 1:00:46. Cerón, from Toluca, later won the London Marathon three consecutive times in 1994, 1995 and 1996, the only man to ever achieve this feat.

Saul Mendoza, also from Mexico, won the Peachtree wheelchair division in 1999 at 19:05! Mendoza was diagnosed with polio at six months old but continued to play various sports growing up. He quickly became very talented in wheelchair racing, which led him to the Olympics and Paralympics. In 1996, he won gold in the 5000m at the Paralympics here in Atlanta!

⭐⭐⭐

En honor del mes de la Herencia Hispana que es celebrada a partir del 15 de Septiembre hasta el 15 de Octubre queremos hacer mención de dos prominentes corredores que han hecho impacto en el Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road race.

¡En 1990 Dionicio Ceron, originario de México, obtuvo la victoria del AJC Peachtree Road Race con un tiempo de 28:23!. Ese mismo año, Ceron obtuvo el récord mundial en el medio maratón con un tiempo de 1:00:46. Este corredor de Toluca, México ganó el Maratón de Londres por tres años consecutivos en 1994, 1995 y 1996 siendo la única persona que ha ganado esos tres eventos.

¡Saul Mendoza, también proveniente de México, ganó el AJC Peachtree Road Race en la división de silla de ruedas en 1994 con un tiempo de 19:05! Mendoza fue diagnosticado con polio a los seis meses de edad pero continuó practicando deportes durante todo su crecimiento. Rápidamente demostró mucho talento para las carreras de sillas de ruedas, y calificó para los Juegos Olímpicos en la categoría Paralímpicos en 1996. ¡Ganó la medalla de oro en 500 M en los Paralímpicos en Atlanta!

Congratulations to this year's AJC Peachtree Road Race Delta Runway to the World winner... Peggy Allumbaugh! 🎉🎉

Delta Air Lines has offered a free trip for one participant of this year's Peachtree to fly anywhere in the U.S. they'd like, anytime, with one additional person! After this year's race, Peggy was randomly selected, and is still deciding on where she could go (we get it, it's a tough decision!) with her husband Greg.

Peggy has been running the Peachtree for over 20 years, and this year ran a PB of over 12 minutes! 🤯 The Atlanta local has always seen the race as a family tradition and is super thankful for the opportunity to continue benefiting from it.

The Peachtree doesn't just give you great experiences - there are plenty of surprises in store, even well after race day! Congratulations, Peggy 👏
