Follow up that runner’s high on Monday with a bargain hunter’s high — these places are offering discounts for those who’ve run the big race.
Atlanta Botanical Garden: After the race ends in Piedmont Park, bring your 2011 race number next door and get free access to the nation’s largest treetop canopy walk. Cool down in the shade on the canopy walk under Storza Woods’ centuries-old hardwood trees, and then enjoy the rest of Midtown’s beautiful urban oasis.
Natural Body Spa and Shoppe: Give those leg muscles a break after your run. After the Peachtree get 25 percent off any massage at the Buckhead Natural Body Spa. 2385 Peachtree Road, Atlanta. 404-869-7722.
Mellow Mushroom: Don’t miss this pizzeria during the race, which is passing out slap bracelets at its Peachtree location that are good for a free appetizer at all Atlanta-area locations.
Pure Taqueria: Imbibe in a free margarita on Monday when you wear your t-shirt or bring your race number. 300 N. Highland Ave NE, Atlanta. 404-522-7873.
Waffle House: As always, runners will find a coupon for a free waffle in their sponsor bags. (But you might as well order something scattered, covered and smothered to go with it!)
Willy’s Mexicana Grill: Now you have an incentive to run faster — as if you needed it. Sprint by the restaurant’s Peachtree Road location in Buckhead for a free Willy’s T-shirt designed by Sarah Butler. But you’ll have to be quick — there are only 1,000 available. Plus, wear your Peachtree Road Race T-shirt (from any year) to Willy’s and get $4 burritos all day.
