If you participated in the Peachtree Road Race, first give yourself a pat on the back after crossing the finish line! After receiving the much coveted Peachtree Road Race T-shirt, meet up with friends and family members to partake in all the fun after-race festivities.
Be sure to grab a water bottle and a few light snacks in the finish area.
If you are running in one Peachtree Road Race’s earlier start waves, don’t miss one of Atlanta’s favorite bands, Yacht Rock Revue, who will perform on the Awards Stage in Piedmont Park Meadow at 8:30 a.m.
After the concert, go cheer on the incredible athletes finishing in the top spots in both the wheelchair and running events. The Shepherd Center Wheelchair Division Awards Ceremony will start at 9 a.m. The Footrace Awards Ceremony will follow at 9:30 a.m. Both will be located on the Awards Stage in Piedmont Park Meadow.
If you are one of the lucky Peachtree Road Race participants who received a silver race number, make your way to the awards stage at 10 a.m. to see if your name will be drawn to win the Delta Runway to the world trip for two to Barcelona!
After the ceremonies, enjoy a relaxing brunch at one of the many Midtown restaurants. In addition, purchase tickets to the 2nd Annual Fourth Fest to see music from Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers and others at the W Hotel Buckhead, taking place on July 3 as well as after the race on July 4. All proceeds will benefit Operation Homefront Georgia.
