This 5-mile run/walk is the oldest running event in the city. It appeals to competitive and casual runners as well as walkers. Join us to honor the 4th of July national holiday and to enjoy the companionship of fellow runners and walkers. Bring your kids for a non-competitive 1/2 mile kids fun run before the general start.
