The Fourth of July for many Atlantans means kicking off the day’s festivities with the Peachtree Road Race (PRR)—officially the world’s largest 10K. First run in 1970 with only 150 racers, the PRR now hosts 60,000 runners and walkers from around the world who come to Atlanta to take on the hot and hilly 6.2-mile course down Peachtree Street to the finish line at Piedmont Park. The PRR is also one large street party with food, drinks, and t-shirts shot from cannons lining the course. Looking for somewhere to watch and cheer? Here’s a handy race day guide mapping out where to dine and drink along the route.
