APRC will present the Ashland 4th of July Run on Thursday, July 4, 2019. This annual run is steeped in tradition dating back to 1976!
Two runs are offered, a 2-mile fun run and a 10K that attracts local competitors as well as running talent from other regions in the U.S. The routes are scenic and on closed roadways. A section of the 10K route is along the tree-lined Bear Creek Greenway.
Both races start at 7:45 a.m. and are chip-timed. All ages are welcome. The start/finish line is near the Ashland Library, 410 Siskiyou Blvd, corner of 3rd St and Gresham St.
