Four on the 4th presented by Fleet Feet

Thu July 4, 2024 Vinton, VA 24179 US Directions


We appreciate everyone’s support of Four on the 4th and Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia over the years.
Four on the 4th is one of the main annual fundraisers for Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA, and they rely on the financial support from this race to provide high-yield, low-cost summer camps and after-school programs for youth who need us most in Roanoke City, Roanoke County, Salem City, Franklin County, and Montgomery County.
Four on the 4th has become a 4th of July tradition among friends and family in the Roanoke Valley to kick off the holiday's festivities. We invite you to help us break our record of participants and register for Four on the 4th! Vinton was such an excellent host that we are continuing the race in Vinton, starting and finishing at the Vinton War Memorial. Check out the race route HERE.
