ATLANTA (AP) - The July 4th Peachtree Road Race is returning to
its old finish line - on the edge of Piedmont Park.
Atlanta Track Club executive director Tracey Russell said
Wednesday that an agreement was worked out with the city of Atlanta
to end the race and use portions of the Meadow in Piedmont Park.
The finish line was moved away from the park last year because
of ongoing drought conditions.
Two other large gatherings that took place outside of the park
last year but are returning this year are the Atlanta Pride
Festival and the Atlanta Dogwood Festival.
