Lifescape 4th of July Classic Run/Walk Registration

Join us for the Lifescape 4th of July Classic on July 4th, 2020. This race is in memory of Joe Marino and his contributions to Rockford's 4th of July celebration and to our community. With COVID-19 we are forced to run a virtual race this year. Information on the virtual race is below.

Since we are unable to congregate for an in-person race, we will be holding a virtual run/walk. Runners and walkers register on like normal. But instead of gathering together to race on the 4th of July, you will do your run/walk on your own. You can race on neighborhood sidewalk, in a park, on a treadmill, or anywhere else. Run or walk any day of the week leading up to the 4th of July - June 28, 2020 to July 4, 2020. Participants will then send us their time and we will gather the results and post them. Runners and walkers are encouraged to dress in patriotic outfits and take photos and videos of their run/walk. Lifescape will be posting the videos and photos as they come in with the #ARACEFORTHEAGES.

Though we will miss seeing all the participants on July 4th , we still want this event to be a fun and exciting way of celebrating our nation and supporting local seniors. After the race we will send out the medals, shirts, and other race swag to the participants’ homes. This time of the COVID-19 epidemic has been especially difficult on our area’s seniors, so your participation is making a wonderful difference this year.

Racers have the choice of running an 8k, a 2-mile, or participating in the 1-mile family fun walk. All racers will receive race swag, including finisher medals and stylish one of a kind race T-shirts. All race proceeds go toward supporting Lifescape’s services and programs.
