Behind the ATC

This is your all access pass to the second largest running organization in the United States, the Atlanta Track Club (ATC). We want to give you a behind-the-scenes look at what it's like to work at the ATC. With a staff of 14, and countless volunteers, you’ll see what it takes for us to put on over 25 events a year, including the AJC Peachtree Road Race (the world's largest 10K), the Atlanta Half Marathon on Thanksgiving Day and the Atlanta Marathon and Marathon Relay. You'll stumble upon fun facts, history, tidbits and great race day coverage. The content is mostly lighthearted, and we hope you'll enjoy it! Grab a cup of coffee, sit back and get to know us...

First we had the monkey, now we have the cat with a Peachtree shirt!

The Atlanta Track Club is representing the cover of the USA Track and Field membership booklet. Looking good! 

Check out the t-shirt wearing orangutans: Blaize, Berani and Feliz. Berani is wearing a Peachtree Road Race t-shirt. How cool!

We got in the holiday spirit at the ATC office this week with a White Elephant gift exchange. Which present would you have selected from the pile?

Yes, it’s a “couch potato” illustration for an ATC gift membership application. Oh the creativity!

From the 1996 December WINGFOOT

It’s a Phidippides holiday ad from the 1990 December WINGFOOT!

Here’s another runner from the 2011 Atlanta Half Marathon getting in the holiday spirit a little early! It seems that we had quite a few Santa Clauses and reindeer this year!

Here’s a no frills, no fuss Resolution Run ad from 1990. And yes, this wonderful event is still around today!
