The 45th Annual Ashland 4th of July Run
will take place virtually for the second straight year.
Before you lace up your sneakers, pick up a commemorative 2021 Virtual Run T-shirt
and join in on the fun!
This year you can run in one of three race distances: a 1-mile fun run, a 5k or a 10K. Run the race in your neighborhood and record your time between Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, July 4. Registration is not required, just submit your results before noon on Monday, July 5, to have your time included. This event is offered at no charge; however, donations will benefit the Phoenix High School (PHS) Cross Country Team. (Historically, the PHS Cross Country Team has helped organize the event.)
T-shirts with this year’s unique logo are available for sale, and whether you run the race or not we encourage you to purchase a shirt to promote this annual, historical Ashland run. The shirts are $25 and will benefit APRC (Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission) and the PHS Country Team! Special thanks to this year’s logo design contest winner, Ilyse Zincone. Deadline to purchase a shirt is June 10.
Be sure to take a selfie on your run in your commemorative t-shirt and share your photo/s on the event Facebook page, Facebook.com/groups/AshlandJuly4thRun
, and on APRC social media, Facebook & Instagram @AshlandParksandRec. #Ashland4thJulyRun #AshlandParksandRec #APRC #AshlandWhatToDo
