ATLANTA - A "red alert" has been issued for Tuesday's AJC Peachtree Road Race due to dangerous weather conditions.
Organizers issued the alert Monday given the risks associated with undergoing strenuous exercises in hot and humid temperatures.
In a statement on their Facebook page, officials warned that “If you have a condition that is worsened by high heat and humidity, please consult a medical professional. It is important to begin hydrating now to prepare your body for race morning.”
Runners are urged to familiarize themselves with the five water stops along the route and consider changing their pace or stopping during the race.
