It's amost time for the traditional Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta -- as in Wednesday, July 4th. So now we ask: How many people from Suwanee will run in the world's largest 10-kilometer (6.2-mile) race?
An interactive map published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution gives an idea. The map shows that about 1.6 percent of the expected 60,000 registrants are from the 30024 ZIP code. That translates into about 960 people. In 2011, about the same number of people from Suwanee registered for the race.

The map shows that the Suwanee contingent is among the highest population concentrations.
The race begins at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, near Lenox Square in Buckhead. It finishes at Piedmont Park. (See the attached course map.)
With all the heat recently, the situation: Forecast for Wednesday is a high of 92, with scattered thunderstorms; temperature at race time is expected to be in the mid-70s.
