Welcome to the inaugural July 4th Have a Blast 4 Miler!
1st 200 Participants receive a shirt and finisher's medal around July 4th!
Registration will close once we receive 200 participants.

Due to current Coronavirus outbreak and uncertainty around whether races will be allowed to happen in the July time frame, we've decided to hold the race virtually.  What does this mean?

Register for the race like you normally do.   You will be mailed your swag and finisher's medal.  All of the running will be done on your own during any day in the month of July.   Heck, you're even welcome to run the intended race course in Elmira, but please do so solo.    

What do I receive for my entry fee?
1) A custom designed short sleeve technical shirt in your choice of unisex sizes (S, M, L, XL, or 2XL)
*Shirt reveal coming in early May!
2) An amazing finisher's medal with a cool spinning feature!
*Shown below.
3) A $3 donation to our official race charity, the Southern Tier Food Bank to support Covid19 needs in the community
4) A map of the proposed 4 miler course for 2021 (run it solo in 2020) - Available online.
5) Free shipping of your swag and medal directly to your house.
