Festive and Fast: Patriotic Attire at the Peachtree

In the season of Santa hats, reindeer antlers and ugly sweaters, we wanted to take some time to look at the festive attire that comes with our favorite holiday - the Fourth of July. Every year, thousands of runners deck themselves out in the reddest, whitest and bluest garb they can find to celebrate running and the good ol’ USA! And while big costumes aren’t allowed at the AJC Peachtree Road Race, we have seen runners and walkers get pretty creative with their clothing.
