Pete the Peach

Meet Pete

Hi there Running City USA! My name is Pete the Peach and I am a friendly, run-loving peach from a south Georgia peach farm. I recently moved to the big city of Atlanta to experience Running City USA, and let's just say it does not disappoint!

If there's one thing I love, it's Atlanta Track Club. They have everything you could ever want: running, running and more running! And if there's anything you could know about me, I love to go on runs and walks… ESPECIALLY with friends. I'm in Atlanta now to make all the friends I possibly can at Atlanta Track Club's events.

You can find me roaming around at Atlanta Track Club's events, and I'm always happy to take a photo, give a hug or high five, and cheer you on to the finish line.
