The Peachtree Road Race Wheelchair Division 10K Road Race  
 sponsored by Atlanta's Shepherd Center is one of America's 
 premier Able-boded and Disabled road races. This 10K which
 starts bright and early (Check Race WEB Site for specific time, usually before 7AM)
 is currently the US's largest Disabled and Able-bodied 10K. Usually drawing     
 approximately 55,000 runners and 75 to 120 wheelchairs.    
 The race starts with a 2.5 mile flat and downhill run      
 before reaching heartbreak hill. The approximately 3/4    
mile hill usually separated the leaders from the pack. The
finish is a long 1 mile downhill which drastically favors  
the racers who can coast the best. Many a leader with     
hundreds of yards of a lead has lost at the tape. There  
are Open Men, Open Women, combined Master, Open Quad,      
combined T1 and a combined Male and Female Junior          
divisions. Following the race there is an award luncheon  
for all athletes and guests at the Shepherd Center.        

 
Wheelchair Race Rating 5 - Great race management, Respect for the wheelchair      
athletes, reasonable prize money, and a killer hill. The 
course is fast due to long downhill's. Spectators need to
chose where to view the race; the start, at the Shepard    
Center at Heart Break hill, or at the finish. The after   
race award luncheon is excellent and fun for both athletes 
and guests. There are many hotels that host athletes but  
most chairs stay at the Embassy Suites on Peachtree Road.  
If you are coming to Peachtree you should consider signing 
up for the other Georgia events surrounding Peachtree in   
the World Series.

DO Not Plan on not leaving Georgia until July 5th so you can come to the giant fireworks display at the Lenox Center on July 4th.       
Rating 1 to 5 where 5 is the best
