Let's celebrate and run on July 4th !!

Here's how 2020 Red, White & Blue or Brew is transforming to be a safe, physical RUN option for you...or a virtual option.  You GET to choose

Course is on the SANTA ANA River Bed.  Start and Finish just south of the Orange Country Register Building on Rampart.  (thisis one block south of Angel Stadium off the 57 and Orangewood.  Rampart is the first left (south) street west of the 57 where you see the Fire Academy structures.  Google 2190 S Towne Center Pl, Anaheim, Ca. 

If you want to come to Run it.. safely.. this is what you can expect.  The run course is on the Santa Ana river bed. We will have a person at the turn around point, right past Garden Grove Blvd handing out sealed water bottles only..  There is shade under the passes and a great view of Angels Big A on the return. It is a fun course. Relatively flat.   You will run out on the left hand of the run path and back on the right hand side in the bikers lane facing bikes.  There will be bikes on the course. And other public.  Respect distancing.  You are choosing to run this on your own, but we will keep track of course times to tabulate for division standings.  You will be given a chipped bib. Step on the mat and the start area.  And step on the mat at the finish. Course start times are anytime between 7:30am and 9:00am.  Awards will be announced at 9:30am.  We will have top three overall trophies and age division awards first to third. 

(Have somewhere else to get to?  If you wish, you can have your division award mailed by returning to the event registration and paying $7 to mailed if you leave before 9:30am.)
