The Atlanta-Journal Constitution Peachtree Road Race has announced its 2024 race course entertainment.

The race is striving to live up to its billing as the “Party of the Summer.” With more people expected than ever to run the world’s biggest 10k, race organizers are trying to make it as exciting as possible. 

“We’re excited to bring an elevated level of entertainment to the Peachtree this year,” said Rich Kenah, CEO of Atlanta Track Club and race director of the Peachtree. “We wanted to do everything we could to make this the true party of the summer, a celebration of community and fitness.”
