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 Ashland4thofJulyRun@gmail.com and include the following information:
Results will also be posted on the event Facebook page at Facebook.com/AshlandJuly4thRun. Be sure to share your running experience and photos!
Things to remember about the virtual run:
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.)
