LOCAL RUNNING FANS BAND TOGETHER
The AJC Peachtree Road Race, held each Fourth of July, is one of the largest 10Ks in the world. But just because you didn’t get one of its 60,000 available spots doesn’t mean you can’t show off your running skills. Shake Shack and partner Highland Runners have formed a new Shack Track & Field running program, in which every second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m., participants take off from the Buckhead burger joint for a 3- to 4-mile run around the community, with free beverages served up after. Over in Brookhaven, the Big Peach Running Co. holds a group run every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. that navigates a 3- to 7-mile route through the neighborhood. Big Peach also offers a free running skills clinic each Monday at 6:30 p.m. that’s designed to help make you a stronger, more efficient runner and reduce the likelihood of injuries. – JB
