Info: The Vale 4th of July Fun Run is not like most 5k’s these days. We are a local group of high school XC coaches and athletes that put on this race as a fundraiser for our team AND as a way for our community to come together on the 4th. We start early to avoid the heat, and we always have chocolate milk at the finish line! There are lots of events going on in the park the day of the race so after you finish you can go see classic cars, eat a pancake and sausage breakfast, or go for a swim at the pool! We keep the cost low because we do it all ourselves. No fancy timing system needed, we are pretty fast with our stopwatch! The loop around town shows off some of Vale’s best while being pretty shady from the trees. Best of all we cheer for every finisher no matter what your time! Come visit us and support our XC team! By doing so you are giving back to us. We use the money from this race to buy everything from sweatshirts/jackets/backpacks/
Cotton T-shirts are available for purchase by 1mile participants (included with 5k and 10K runners entry fee).
