Official 50th Peachtree Road Race Thread
We're turning this into the official thread.
Women's race starts at 6:50 am eastern
Men at 7 am.
Race is live on NBC Sports Gold (Pay per view) and will be shown on cable TV on tape delay at 7 pm Thursday (12 hours later).

$50,000 for course records (27:04 & 30:32)

Peachtree is going all-out for their 50th anniversary. 3 of the 6 fastest women of all-time in Brigid Kosgei (29:54), Fancy Chemutai (30:06) and Caroline Chepkoech Kipkirui (30:19), will chase a $50,000 bonus for breaking the 30:32 course record. Plus Emily Sisson, two-time world marathon champ Edna Kiplagat, Tokyo Marathon champ Ruti Aga, and world 10,000 bronze medalist Agnes Tirop.

The men's course record (which is the fastest time ever ran on US soil, but not the official record as it's net downhill) also has a good shot to go down with the #2 all-time Rhonex Kipruto (26:46) leading Stephen Sambu (27:25), 2016 winner Gabriel Geay his brother, Africa U20 champ Bravin Kiptoo, plus Americans Tyler Pennel and Abdi Abdirahman.

There will be rabbits going out on CR pace (4:17 for the men, 4:55 for the women) so they're definitely shooting for the records.

LetsRun will have boots on the ground as Peachtree is flying out Steve Soprano to cover the race.
