ATL Traditions

For anyone who has ran, walked or drunkenly bounded down the Peachtree Road Race course while dressed as an Oompa Loompa, Atlanta magazine offers a poignant little meditation on why "the city's greatest athletic tradition" is important. The Top 10 Reasons-style countdown touches on the race's inclusiveness — it's probably the only day in ATL when ITP versus OTP matters not — and notes that this largest race of its kind stokes an emotion that's too rarely verbalized: sheer pride in the city.
