The funkiest, coolest costumes from the AJC Peachtree Road Race

Atlantans are nothing if not creative. Many runners who showed up to the AJC Peachtree Road Race displayed creativity matched only by their patriotism. They showed there are lots of ways to wear stars and stripes, especially if you don’t mind standing out in the race.

These are some of our favorite costumes and outfits spotted during the race.
