AJC Peachtree Road Race 2023?
This year’s event is expected to draw a large crowd, potentially surpassing the estimated 60,000 attendees from the 2022 race.
Senbere Teferi, an Ethiopian runner, is a top contender for the 2023 AJC Peachtree Road Race title. Teferi, who is aiming to be the first repeat Peachtree champion since 2010, has already posted a time of 30:12 this year on a mostly downhill course in New York.
In the men’s race, Tadesse Worku, also from Ethiopia, is favored to win. Worku’s personal best time of 26:56 is five seconds faster than the Peachtree course record. However, Tuesday morning’s conditions may not be conducive to a record-breaking performance.
