Description

Join us for the Lifescape 4th of July Classic Run/Walk (Formerly known as the MELD/YSN Classic).

This race is in memory of Joe Marino and his contributions to Rockford's 4th of July celebration and to our community.

Lifescape 4th of July Classic is a race for the ages! This is a race for everyone whether you are an experienced runner, this is your first race, or you are just looking for a fun event to do with their family. This race is a wonderful way to celebrate our nation and support a local nonprofit. 

Racers have the choice of running an 8k, a 2-mile, or participating in the 1-mile family fun walk. All racers will receive race swag, including finisher medals, stylish one of a kind race T-shirts, and....  PANCAKES! After the race, all participants are invited to make the short walk to the Downtown Rockford City Pavilion (Where City Market is held). This race includes a Post Race Pancake Breakfast! We will have pancakes, plus plenty of other fresh breakfast foods and refreshments.

Covid-19 protocols and guidance will be communicated as we get closer to race day.
