It's a Fourth of July Celebration! If you think the only race that's happening on America's 245th Birthday weekend is seeing who's first to snag that second helping of BBQ or who can down that cold beverage the fastest, guess again! Before lifting a fork, diving off the back of your boat, and taking that post pool party snooze, hundreds of American's will start their holiday by joining forces and celebrating with other patriots at America's 5k! AND, if you are an American Hero, we want to honor you with a land of the FREE race bib!
2021 American Race Heroes Include: Active and Retired Military, First Responders (EMS, Fire and Police), Nurses and Teachers. (for your coupon code, email your proof of credentials to email@example.com).
We're also celebrating the heat of elite runners, weekend warriors, mamma's with strollers and kids alike to join us for 3.1 miles of Birthday FUN!
As with all First Flight Alliance events, proceeds go to scholarship kids in the community to be active through our Operation Active Kids, OAK program.
So, if you have a flair for costumed fun and are looking for a reason to feel guilt free about BBQ and lounging all day and you feel like the stars and stripes are in your favor, and LOVE AMERICA make a like a firecracker and shoot on over to register today!
