fourth of july 5K run logoTraditionally, the Weston Hometown Fourth of July Celebration is truly a Hometown event; however, due to COVID-19, we are still keeping it hometown; but, virtual style!

We know that it’s hot and humid in South Florida in July, and you will miss the traditional the Hook and Ladder Shower at the finish line, but who says you can't splash yourself with a hose at home?  Just make sure you run the 5K first, or you might get some serious blisters with wet shoes and socks. This year’s virtual event is bound to be just as good as the race onsite in previous years. To participate, download the RaceJoy App and search for the "VIRTUAL Weston Hometown July 4th Celebration".  Then on race day you can run the race on your own, whenever you choose, throughout the day. Your time will get uploaded automatically to the results - it’s that simple! If you prefer not to use the RaceJoy app, you can submit your results on the race website, or via text message after you run.  Run your race, your way.

All participants will receive a finisher medal and a race t-shirt after the event. You MUST complete the event and submit your time to receive the medal and t-shirt. Instructions for race item pickup will be posted soon.

Event Schedule: Submit your race time by 11:59 p.m. on 7/4/2020, or you will count as a DNF (Did Not Finish)
