What a good reason to get a new pair of running shoes, to run a 5k! You can save money on both by buying a pair of Nike running shoes (or any other Nike product purchases totaling $75 or more) at the Big Peach Running Company. Not only will you get to take advantage of their competitive prices on running shoes but you also get a free race entry in the Big Peach 5k Run/Walk. This is the 4th running of this popular Atlanta road race. Since Big Peach Running Company takes the time to go through their fit process to find the best running shoe for you, give them the best thank you possible, run your PR at the Big Peach 5k Run/Walk!
The race is on May 2nd at the Big Peach Running Co store in Brookhaven. Try to take the Brookhaven/Oglethorpe MARTA because you won’t be able to park in the Cherokee Plaza Shopping Center on race day, plus you’ll save the environment a bit. Go environment! If you must drive (like most Atlantans, don’t worry, MARTA apparently is “too large to fail” and is getting bailed out) you can park at the Brookhaven MARTA station parking lot. The course rolls through the beautiful Brookhaven neighborhood and has an exciting finish right on Peachtree Road! Just like the Peachtree Road Race…just half the race distance, about 50,000 less people, and a finish line 2 miles North of the Peachtree Road Race start line. So it’s pretty much the same thing. All Big Peach Running Company 5k race participants will get a NIKE Dri Fit technical T-shirt which will have the Big Peach Running Company name on it. A T-shirt with the word “peach” on it is all the Peachtree Road Race is good for anyways, right? Need another reason to run this race? How about the proceeds go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society/Team In Training-GA Chapter? I spoke with a friend this past weekend that is participating in Team In Training and it is a great organization. Not only is she working to raise money for Leukemia and Lymphoma but she is getting in better shape than she would have on her own. Everyone’s a winner! Well, in this 5k race the top 3 overall male and female finishers along with the top 3 in each age group are the biggest winners. Big Peach Gift Cards will go to the top 3 overall M/F ($200, $100, $50) along with 1st overall Masters M/F ($100/$100). Also, age group awards presented to Top 3 M/F in 13 age groups. If you are more of a team player then compete in the corporate challenge. No matter what your team’s strengths, you have a chance to win with awards going to the top teams for most participants, fastest team, and best team T-shirt design. Overall, Big Peach Running Company wants to promote the pedestrian active lifestyle or P.A.L. So get out their and move your body forward anyway you desire. Just get moving! After you’re done moving for 3.1 miles hang out for the post-race party with lots of food, music, and raffles! Partying is fun.
