Festive family fun to kick off the 4th of July! Join us at the biggest patriotic party in the Sarasota area for a festive 4 Mile Race around the lake at Nathan Benderson Park, just before sunset and the annual fireworks display. Experience the feel of a major race with crowds cheering you on as you celebrate Independence Day with a patriotic themed race just before sundown. Top 100 male and 100 female finishers will be awarded a commemorative prize. All participants will receive a race shirt, finisher's medal, glow gear and the support of a cheering crowd all along the lake at Nathan Benderson Park. Bands at the starting and finish line, plus food and beverages at the after party and a spectacular fireworks show make this race an event not to be missed. Come early for the Kids' Dashes at 6:30pm and get the whole family involved in the summer fun.
