Due to COVID-19 and for the safety of our running community, we have cancelled this year's traditional event. 

We are excited to announce our first ever virtual 4th of July run called United 2 Run Solo. This Solo race is a 4-mile run through Woodward Park, beginning and ending near the Art of Life Healing Garden.  See course map for more details.  Race entry is $15.00 – patriotic race-day t-shirts are available!  All Shirts will be picked up at Fleet Feet on August 8th between 2-4pm.

United 2 Run Solo will use the RaceJoy app, available on Apple and Android devices.  Some of the cool features of RaceJoy include:

  •   Course map with turn-by-turn directions
  •   GPS-based progress alerts at every mile marker
  •   Highlights of water faucet and restroom locations
  •   A special playlist with clips from 12 of the most popular patriotic songs

The best part of a Solo/Virtual race is that it’s on your terms!  You can participate any time between July 1st and July 31st.  During the 30-day period you can run the race as many times as you’d like for just one entry fee.  RaceJoy and Runsignup will save only your last race time, so remember to save your best for last!

The Solo Run doesn’t mean you have to run alone!  Bring a small group of your family and friends to run with you or cheer you on.   

All proceeds and donations from the race will go to the Poverello House and the Sierra Challenge Express Scholarship program.  This year SCE has already awarded over $8,000 in scholarships and grants to high school and college bound athletes with demonstrated academic and athletic excellence.  Our next application window begins August 1st, 2020; visit the SCE scholarship program page to learn more.
