The Lander Running Club is hosting a FREE Virtual Competition to celebrate our love for running, our appreciation for community and to offer an opportunity for people to challenge themselves in a competitive format. 

The races will be live from July 4th at 5am through Saturday July 11th at 10pm. You can run or walk the routes on your own schedule, you can try them multiple times to improve your time, you can dress up in your best Fourth of July outfit. Have fun with this. Challenge yourself to move out of your comfort zone. And be sure to smile while you are doing it!
