    Presented by: BMW of South Atlanta 

    Join us for the first annual Rotary Club of Peachtree City Half Marathon & 5k, Presented by BMW of South Atlanta, on January 13, 2024. Our Rotary Club and Peachtree City have a long partnership of service in a community of runners. The tree lined golf cart paths of our planned community are an ideal place for this event for runners of all levels and abilities. Greenspace, lakes, and wildlife mark this family friendly, fitness oasis, just a short drive south of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International
    Airport. Both the Half Marathon and 5k are on USATF certified courses and the 5K is a qualifier for the Peachtree Road Race.

    By participating in this inaugural event, you will help the Rotary Club of Peachtree City continue our local history of serving through running. For 18 years we have hosted the Rotary Grand Prix 5k Series in partnership with 15 local elementary schools, raising over $1millon for those schools and helping to reduce childhood obesity through fitness. And this is just one of the many ways we model “Service Above Self” in our local and global community each year.

    Rotary International is a global network of 1.4 million members across 46,000 clubs, founded in Chicago, IL on February 23, 1905. The Rotary Club of Peachtree City was established in 1967, is the oldest service club in Fayette County, and currently operates with approximately 120 members. Rotarians believe we have a responsibility to unite and take action that creates lasting change – in ourselves, in our communities, and across the globe. Our focus areas include promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, improving sanitation and hygiene, rescuing mothers and children, supporting education, growing local economies, and stewarding our environment. We do this by providing service to others, promoting integrity, advancing world understanding, and fostering goodwill through our fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.
