I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.  Eric Liddell, Chariots of Fire

Each year on the 4th of July, Atlanta hosts the Peachtree Road Race, the largest 10K road race in the world. This year 60,000 enthusiastic runners will race down Peachtree Street in the heart of Atlanta.  If you have never done this race before it is a ton of fun.  Even if you are not a big runner, you can do it.  It may be sweltering hot, but you will be running with friends while thousands of people are cheering you on.

This year, we are hoping to have a big Sixty Feet turn out on race day so if you plan to run please let us know at info@sixtyfeet.org.  We’ll get you a Sixty Feet t-shirt so you can help spread the word.  Our goal is to have as many runners as possible wearing a Sixty Feet tee.

Then at the end of the race please join us in Piedmont Park to fellowship and grab some refreshing water (Sixty Feet style).  We will be near the “U” (for Uganda) Balloon in the Family Meeting Area, which should be easy to find even if you have never run the Peachtree before.

Also, please feel free to share this with a friend and if they would like to wear a tee as well we’ll get one to them.  We look forward to seeing a large turn out and hopefully sharing the mission of Sixty Feet with a few people who may never have heard about us, or Jesus!
