"We really try to make it fun and festive for the whole family," says race spokesman Lonnie Somers. "We have prizes for the top costumes for both kids and adults, and it's as good as any fireworks display to see all that red, white, and blue on the move once the race gets under way. Were extra excited this year because of our new partnership to benefit the American Cancer Societys Team DetermiNation program."
Register online at www.Liberty4Mile.com or on race day starting at 7:30 a.m. (Registration is $35/adults, $25/youth and seniors, or $100 for the Four on the 4th Four-Pack, and includes T-shirts and a HydraPouch for the cup-free hydration stations.) And don't miss the Firecracker Kids Fun Run at 10 a.m: We rile the kids up real good in front of the big crowd and then bang! set them loose, Somers says. Its a blast. Stick around afterward for chocolate fondue from the Melting Pot and other special treats for kids of all ages.
