Midtown Atlanta 5K

Thursday, Aug 29, 2019 at 10:00am

Piedmont Park
1320 Monroe Drive NorthEast
Atlanta, GA 30306

From Atlanta’s largest park to the world’s largest drive-in, this tour has plenty of superlatives. Run Midtown to experience the neighborhood where southern charm meets modern elegance. Begin your run at Piedmont Park, finish line of the world’s largest 10K, and run like the wind up to the Margaret Mitchell House, birthplace of Gone With the Wind. Your run continues down Peachtree Street, Atlanta’s main street, to the Fabulous Fox Theatre, which houses its very own living phantom…and a few that are no longer living. Next, you’ll take in the smells of The Varsity, the world’s largest drive-in, wave at Buzz Yellowjacket at Georgia Tech, then head back to the park via West Peachtree Street—we’ll also tell you how many street names in Atlanta have “Peachtree” in them.
