On Wednesday, 60,000 people took part in the 43rd running of the 2012 Peachtree Road Race.
The morning started with the Shepherd Center Wheelchair Division.
Aaron Gordian and Tatyana McFadden are celebrating a victory after their wins in the wheelchair race.
This is the third victory for McFadden.
The elite runners, some of the fastest runners in the world, ran next.
Peter Kirui, 24, of Kenya was the men's winner with a time of 27 minutes, 36 seconds.
The fastest female, Mamituu Daska of Ethiopia, crossed the finish line with a time of 32 minutes, 21 seconds.
It was the first Peachtree Road Race win for the both of them.
The bulk of the participants were there just to compete against themselves.
Some wanted to see if they could beat their personal best, and some of them just hoped to cross the finish line and get the coveted Peachtree Road Race T-shirt.
"It's something I've always wanted to do, being an Atlanta native. You know, I've heard about it for years and years and years. And so I decided I'm just going to do it," said Debbie Tatum of Marietta.
Also in the pack was 9-year-old Tristan Peevy of Woodstock. This is his second Peachtree. He's been running since he was 7.
"I guess he saw me running and he wanted to try it, so a few years ago, I took him on a few 5Ks, and he ran. He did real good," said his mother, Traci Peevy. "He loves the distance, so here we are."
Among the runners were several CBS Atlanta employees. Anchor and reporter Katie Brace ran in the first wave of competitors. Anchor JaQuitta Williams, reporter Renee Starzyk, and producer Flip Fors also ran.
Today's race had one of the hottest start times in the history of the race. The race started with a yellow flag, indicating a less than ideal heat condition, but by mid-race the flag changed to red, meaning potentially dangerous conditions.
A total of 13 patients were taken to area hospitals from the road race. There were no cardiac arrest patients this year.
