2014 Upcoming Races Round-Up for the 4th of July weekend races in Oregon and SW Washington (Updated 7/12)

The 4th of July means a lot of different things to everyone. Maybe you are celebrating our freedom and being grateful to those who sacrificed their freedom for ours. Maybe it means lovely picnics with BBQ beans, juicy watermelons, and fun flag cakes. Or maybe decorating the yard and neighborhood (or ourselves) in Red, White, and Blue. Or even celebrating with colorful bursts of sparkle called fireworks when the days comes to an end. If you are a runner though, it also means another day to celebrate a run! If you like to run on holidays, you are in luck! There is a lot of races out there for the 4th of July Runner and I have taken the time to put them all in one place for you! Hopefully I got them all, including weekend races too! Prices may or may not include Date of Registration (DOR), so check websites please for prices and if DOR is available and the cost. If I missed a race- let me know!
