The most significant difference that all potential attendees should be aware of is that only registered participants can choose a time slot to attend the Expo. And, anyone else who attends must be accompanied by that person.

Familiarize yourself with the key differences between this Expo and those held in the years before 2020. Here is a handy topline of need-to-know info for race participants who plan to sign up for a slot and attend:

Location

Hall C2 of the Georgia World Congress Center, 285 Andrew Young International Blvd NW, Atlanta

Who can attend

As part of a focused effort to limit crowds, all attendees must make an appointment by 11:59 p.m. on June 18 to visit the Expo during operating hours on one of the four days.

Only people who have successfully registered for the race, either through Atlanta Track Club membership or the lottery that was concluded last month, are eligible to make appointments. They may bring family members or friends with them to the Expo, but the guests must be accompanied by a registered participant.

Registered participants and the guests they escort to the Expo must all adhere to the safety measures put in place to address COVID-19 safety. Wearing masks at all times is mandatory, for example, except during the time a participant is taking part in the race. Before admission to the exhibit hall, all attendees must pass COVID-19 screening procedures or present vaccine verification.

Hours and dates

9 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday-Sunday, June 26-27

9 a.m.-3 p.m., Thursday-Friday, July 1-2

How to sign up for an appointment to attend

These are the steps for registered race participants, who are allowed to bring family and friends who also meet all the safety and admission criteria.

  1. Log into your race registration account here.
  2. Navigate to the “Your Registrations” and click “View Registration for the 2021 Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race,” where you should see an option at the top that will allow you to pick an appointment.
  3. Make your selection, click “Save” and wait for a notice at the top of the page that you’ve successfully completed the selection.
  4. You may get a notification that your selected time already has met the limit for participants. In that case, repeat the process with a new selection until you hit on one that succeeds.

Items race participants must bring to pick up a race number at the Expo:

  • A photocopy or original of one of the following IDs: Drivers license, passport, government/school-issued ID, employee badge
  • The race confirmation that was emailed to registered participants by June 24. You can display the confirmation as a printout or digitally on a handheld device
  • If you wish to skip the COVID-19 screening procedure and have been fully vaccinated, a photocopy or the original of your vaccine verification. This is optional, but anyone without such verification will be required to undergo screening procedures.

Be cautious in thinking you could simply opt to pick up your number on race day. To exercise that option, you must have purchased “race day pickup” when you paid the registration fees.

If you would like to retroactively opt for that convenience, you are able to log back into your participant account and choose to purchase that option in the “Your Products” section.

Note, though, that all the same proofs, verifications and screenings will be in place at the entry point to the race and the spot where you go to pick up your number.

COVID-19 precautions in place

Along with the strict cleaning, self-serve water and “wear a mask unless you’re in the race” mandates, COVID-19 screening will be in place at the race and Expo alike.

Participants and their escorted attendees can present a negative test or vaccination verification for admission to the hall. Anyone without such proof will go through a COVID-19 screening process that may involve specially-trained dogs from Alabama-based 360K9, a bio-detection agency.

My dad was an incredible long distance runner. In middle school he ran with the high school team and was beating almost all of them. This guy would run for miles just because he was bored. Growing up, I can always remember him getting excited when the weather got warmer because that meant he could run outside again (he hates the cold so winter running was just not gonna happen). Even after two battles with cancer, he still ran at least once a week just because he loved it. In 2012, his running days were finally over. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and running was just no longer an option for him. I decided if he couldn’t run, I would have to do it for him. It started as just casual jogs (really more like walks) around the neighborhood, then I ran (cross country) as a senior in high school to honor him. I went away to college and didn’t really think about it. Every year I would tell him that this would be the year we ran the Peachtree together and every year I forgot and missed the deadline. When the pandemic hit and quarantine forced us all to stay home, I realized it was the perfect time to start getting back into running and finally do this for him. I did just that and had him coaching me along the way. While it won’t happen this year, I hope that someday soon he will be able to join me in crossing that finish line and showing Parkinson’s disease who the boss is.","level":3,"_id":"547R5EGWEZDPJIVTTCYFB3GZ5A","additional_properties":"inline_comments":[],"comments":[],"_id":1622576373944,"type":"header","content":"Sonya Alexander","_id":"5PRQJ6BWGNCIDISSV5HDJZRA5Q","additional_properties":"inline_comments":[],"comments":[],"_id":1622576373945,"type":"text","content":"I saw this post on Facebook and this was an easy one for me.
