Question: Why don't you guys send out the confirmation emails the same time you start mailing out the bibs to people?
Answer: Not all bibs are mailed, the majority of bibs are still picked up at the Peachtree Health & Fitness Expo, and the confirmation emails are sent out once all numbers have been assigned. A number look up will be posted to peachtreeroadrace.org the week of 6/23.
Question: My friend & I were assigned to incorrect wave starts based in the info we provided at registration. what steps do we need to take to get them corrected?
Answer: Start wave standards are used as a guideline each year to determine wave placement. Start wave standards are determined based off the range of qualifying times that were submitted during registration. During the verification and assignment process, it may be necessary to adjust the standards from the previous year in order to accommodate the range of qualifying times that are submitted and the volume of runners within the physical space allotted. If we have made an error in our wave placement we will certainly correct it, however, if it is an error in the way the qualifying time was entered we have to stick with what was originally issued. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Question: Why the ugly cotton t shirts?
Answer: This is a topic that comes up every year. We encourage you to participate in your post-race survey as this is a conversation that we feel participants should be a part of. Thank you!
