Several elite and local runners will take to the streets, with world record holders Brigid Kosgei of Kenya and Senbere Teferi of Ethiopia leading a very women’s elite field this year.
Kosgei, who is the marathon world record holder, and Teferi, the 5-K road world record holder for an all-women’s race, will battle for the top spot, along with Rosemary Wanjiru and Fancy Chemutai of Kenya.
The runner will not only be hunting a victory at the Peachtree Road Race 2022, but also a share of $53,000 in bonus money should one of them win the race and break the women’s course record of 30:22.
“I have heard many good things about the Peachtree,” said Teferi through a statement. “I want to come prepared as best as possible to challenge the course record and put my name in the history of the race.”
On the men’s side, Kenya’s Rhonex Kipruto, Kibiwott Kandie, Geoffrey Koech and Mathew Kimeli are among the leading starters.
The fans and organizers are hoping that the Peachtree Road Race 2022 on Monday will produce America’s first sub-27:00 clocking.
In fact there is also an incentive by the Atlanta Track Club (ATC), the race founders and organizers, who have put up a special $53,000 bonus for the winning man should he break course record. Breaking his mark by two seconds would deliver the first sub-27:00 on American soil.
