Run - Annual 4th July Run

4th of July Run Logo
Let's come together from a distance! 

In order to abide by the Governorís restrictions and guidelines surrounding COVID-19, the Ashland Chamber of Commerce made the decision to cancel the traditional Ashland 4th of July parade, park and fireworks festivities for 2020. Consequently, the 44th Annual 4th of July Run has been reimagined and in the spirit of community and health, we will host a virtual run at no charge.

Runners of all abilities are encouraged to run or walk a 10K, 5K or 1-mile run sometime between June 27 and July 4, 2020. Historically, the run is a 10K or a 2-mile race; however, the virtual run will include the staple 5K run and the 1-mile run will replace the 2-mile event.

Following your solo run, email your stats by noon on July 5, 2020 to the Race Director at and include the following information: 


  • Name and gender
  • Age on race day
  • Run completed (10K, 5K or 1-mile)
  • Run time
  • City/State or City/Country where run was done

Results will also be posted on the event Facebook page at Be sure to share your running experience and photos! 

Things to remember about the virtual run:

  • No early registration
  • No entry fee
  • No awards
  • The 2020 t-shirt design was by Jen Hickenlooper. If you pre-ordered a shirt, please plan to pick up shirt/s at The Grove on Mon, June 29 or Tue, June 30, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days. The Grove is located at 1195 E Main St in Ashland. Please drive up to the entrance of The Grove, on the parking lot side, and staff will present your order; remain in your car and wear a face covering (Sorry, but due to staffing restraints we will not be able to mail your shirt, you must be able to pick up on June 29 or 30, no exceptions)

The annual run is a fundraiser for the Phoenix High School Cross Country and Track Teams. Please consider making a tax-deductible DONATION! (You will be redirected to a GoFundMe page.)
