The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race
Lenox Square to Piedmont Park
After a move to Thanksgiving 2020, this 4th of July tradition is back with a twist. This year’s 10K race is spread over two days and has a virtual race component. Unfortunately, registration for the race itself is closed, but there is still plenty of celebratory fun to be had.
If you were lucky enough to get a race number for the 60,000+ person race, you may want to check out this unofficial guide to race. If you aren’t running or walking in this year’s race, you can join the more than 150,000 spectators to cheer on your racer along the Peachtree Road racecourse, then meet them in Piedmont Park to celebrate their completion.
In addition to the list above, many local communities will host 4th of July celebrations. We have broken them down by county. Check the sites linked for official dates and descriptions!
