ATLANTA -- With 11 days to go, Saturday was a milestone for hundreds of runners training for the AJC Peachtree Road Race.
They took part in what they called a "pre-Peachtree" run to test out the hills and the heat.
"I'm struggling because it's a little humid for me," said runner Chuck Moreland. "But we're getting through it, and it feels pretty good so far."
The Atlanta Track Club organized this official test run and encouraged runners to get up early to cover the entire 6.2 mile course from Phipps to Piedmont Park.
As many as 300 runners with the In-Training for Peachtree Program presented by Publix took part.
Race veterans also ran the course.
