The design called "Lucky Bib" by author Emily Giffin is the winner. Her shirt features a race bib commemorating the 50th running of the race.
Giffin and her three children, who are all runners, came up with the concept for the design. She said "Like all families, mine enjoys many special traditions on the holidays."
They're favorite, she said, is the Peachtree on July 4.
Giffin brought in Tina Tait to being the design to life. Tait was a past t-shirt design winner who won the content in 2015.
Because Giffin won, a $5,000 donation will be made by Atlanta Track Club and the Atlanta Journal Constitution to the City of Refuge.
