The Peachtree qualifier course will take place on the Big Creek Greenway and is a flat, fast course as well as the chip-timed race.

The theme for this year, as in the past, is superhero, and contestants are encouraged to wear costumes.

A contest will award prizes to the most creative superhero costumes.

Technical T-shirts are guaranteed for 5K runners registered by Feb. 16, and awards are given for the top three men and top three women contestants overall in addition to the top three in each age group.
