American National Bank's Four on the 4th presented by Fleet Feet

Mon July 4, 2022 Vinton, VA 24179 US Directions
We appreciate everyone’s support of Four on the 4th and the Boys & Girls Club over the years.
Four on the 4th is one of the main annual fundraisers for the Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA, and they rely on the financial support from this race to provide summer camps and after school programs for disadvantaged youth in Roanoke City, Roanoke County, Salem City, Franklin County and Montgomery County. In 2021, we raised over $18,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA.
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 (517 4-milers), and register for Four on the 4th!

NEW THIS YEAR! We are excited to announce that Four on the 4th will be taking place in Vinton, starting and finishing at the Vinton War Memorial! Check out the new race route HERE.
