For the past 36 years the Peachtree City Classic has offered a Men's 5K, a Women's 5K and a 15K race. The Classic is not only a quality race, it is also a beautiful one, running through the woods, the greenbelts, the tunnels and on the cart paths. Nearly 80% of the participants each year have run previous Classics, which speaks volumes about the quality of this race.
This year for just the third year, participants will be able to compete in the "Peachtree City Classic 20K" by running in both a 5K and the 15K and competing in awards for a combined 20K time. If you can complete one of the 5K's in 40 minutes or less, you can simply jump into the 15K start making you eligible to win awards in the 20K. If you are planning to run the 20K you must register for only the 20K. Registration in the 20K will be limited to a 250 runner field. Do you have the stuff to compete in both back to back?

David Allman, a member of the Library's Writers Circle, will release his novel, Acorns to Wheat: A Chaseen Family Saga on September 20th. This program is free and open to the public and will be held in the Floy Farr Room of the Peachtree City Library.
Acorns to Wheat is a story of fictional lives in the real world of 4000BC. These were the first farmers. Based on years of archaeological study, flesh has been restored to bones. Acorns to Wheat goes beyond the current digs to tell the story of lives lived at the dawn of cultures. Before the Romans, before the Greeks, before the Gauls, there were the Chasseen. This is more than dry bones, broken pottery and fierce gods. Look BEYOND the research analysis and feel the people come alive. You are among the Chasseen. ~acornstowheat.com
