Palmer Lake July 4 Fun Run - VIRTUAL RACE

Sat July 4, 2020
Free to run anywhere you like!

This year the July 4th Fun Run will be a VIRTUAL RACE or we could call it REMOTE RUNNING or a whole new meaning to DISTANCE RUNNING.  We know this, at first, can seem very disappointing as we all love to gather and celebrate.  But I mean, MURDER HORNETS!? We thought running in a mask was bad, try a bee suit!

Don't worry, you'll still get the super soft one of a kind t-shirt and decal! KEEP READING! 


Good news!

Live free and run wild! For the first time in the history of the July 4th Fun Run, you are free to choose your own course and the time. That’s right, 7am start time is an OPTION! and can be run anywhere in the world. You heard me. The. World. Where will you be running?

We will still mark the course the week prior to July 4th so you may run the traditional race at your convenience! Just know that we are there with you in spirit cheering you on!

You will still get the softest and most sought after shirt in Colorado and a one of a kind decal to decorate your car, water bottle, or facemask. 

In addition, because this is a virtual race we have decided not to increase the price.  That is correct you can procrastinate! However, make sure to order by June 25th in order to claim your shirt! 

As always all proceeds from this race will go directly to Palmer Lake Elementary School.  Thank you for your continued support!

What's different for 2020?

Medals - medals will be in the form of your favorite rock on the trail you chose to run on or the certificate from you can print off after you submit your virtual time or in the form of "likes" on your Facebook and Instagram posts! Unfortunately, the company that we traditionally go through to get medals just informed us that they will not be able to fulfill our order for 2020. 

In this time of distancing we are so grateful to be part of a community that continually comes together, no matter what that looks like.  We feel your pain in missing out on a favorite tradition, but know in the near future we will be able to look back and share stories…..remember that one year the July 4th Fun Run was VIRTUAL????  Yeah, I have the t-shirt...




We've got the goods. We want to give you the goods. Feel free to pick up for your teammates, friends, family members, and well, yourself. We STRONGLY encourage you to pick up your packet. 

Packet pickup will definitely be different this year. We are brainstorming ideas as information comes out and changes daily but rest assured that the safety of our runners and volunteers is our first priority!  Stay tuned! 

Don’t want to pick up your packet, we’ll happily mail it to you for only $5 more per packet.


Welp, here's the scoop. Our medal company that we traditionally order our medals from has informed us that they are unable to complete our order this year. We will be emailing you a certificate of achievement and virtually high fiving you as you cross your make believe finish line!
