My absolute favorite cheer location though is at Shepherd Center. As you come up to "Cardiac Hill" at mile 3.5ish, stay to the right for some of the absolute best motivation, smiles, and high-fives you could ask for - the patients, staff, and family from Shepherd Center line the course and are sure to get you motivated like never before!
After rocking 6.2 miles, what could be better than celebrating with your friends and family!?! Gather in Piedmont Park and meet up with fellow runners or spectators for a little bit of relaxing and celebrating! With 60,000+ runners plus spectators and volunteers, it can be challenging to meet-up, make sure to find a designated meeting place prior to race morning.
There are so many different vendors with food and drinks to help refuel afterwards that the options seem to be endless. Be sure to stop by the Publix table and get one of the best sought after post-Peachtree Road Race treats - a fresh Georgia peach! While the food is awesome, my favorite is the Coca-Cola set up that has bins full of just about any Coca-Cola soft drink and PowerAde that you could possibly want. Nothing beats the taste of an ice-cold drink after 6.2 miles on July 4th!
