The annual lead-up to the Peachtree Road Race for wheelchair athletes saw one world record broken and another just seconds away from a new time as racers crossed the finish line in Cedartown on Tuesday night.

Women’s race winner Tatyana McFadden set a new 5K record of 11:11.57, beating the 11:19 time previously set at this race in 2014, which McFadden won as well.

She said following the race Tuesday the new milestone was an accomplishment, but her eye remains fixed ahead to the Peachtree Road race.

“I have so much fun at this race,” she said. “It’s the perfect course, lots of hills so there’s ups and downs.”
