Event Description

It's a Fourth of July Celebration!  If you think the only race that happens on America's Birthday is seeing who gets a second helping of barbeque first or who can down that cold beverage the fastest, guess again! Before lifting a fork, diving off the back of your boat, and taking a post pool party snooze, hundreds of Andersonian's will start their holiday by celebrating with hundreds of thier closest patriots at America's 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run! 

We welcome the heat of Elite runners, weekend warriors, mamma's with strollers and kids alike along our 3.1 mile certified run course! Or, have a BLAST at the the 1 Mile FUN RUN!
Proceeds go to scholarship kids in the community to be active through our Operation Active Kids Program, OAK.  
So, if you have a flair for costumed fun, enjoy fun prizes and are looking for a reason to feel guilt free about BBQ and lounging all day, then the stars and stripes are in your favor! Make a light a firecracker and shoot on over to register today!
