ATLANTA — Olympic Silver Medalist Shalane Flanagan will race for the first time since the 2016 Olympic Games at the 2017 AJC Peachtree Road Race. Flanagan, whose time of 30:52 at the 2016 BAA 10K is the fastest road 10K ever run by an American woman, will compete in the USA 10K Championships at Peachtree after recovering from a fracture in her lower back while training for the Boston Marathon.

“I am excited to return to the AJC Peachtree Road Race to run for the national title,” said Flanagan, a four-time Olympian who placed sixth in the marathon at Rio (2:25:26). “There is no better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with the best distance runners in the country at the world’s largest 10K.” Flanagan last raced at Peachtree in 2015 and was the first woman across the finish line in 32:05.

Flanagan and whole-foods chef Elyse Kopecky will also make a special appearance at the 2017 AJC Peachtree Road Race for a good cause. The co-authors of “Run Fast, Eat Slow,” will discuss their New York Times Bestseller and participate in a meet and greet on July 2 at the Georgia World Congress Center. The event will be presented by Whole Foods Markets, and a portion of the proceeds will go to Atlanta Track Club’s youth running program, Kilometer Kids.

Both she and coach, Pat McGregor, had a secret actually. They both knew she was going to win.

Flash-forward exactly 4:31.24 seconds and the stands were in an uproar, the online media was in a frenzy, jaws were still agape after watching this 12th seeded Junior from Samford University in Birmingham, AL, make herself an NCAA Champion.
