Before lounging around the barbecue grill or gazing at fireworks, kickstart July 4th celebrations with the healthy, family-friendly run/walk event Run San Ramon.
An East Bay Independence Day tradition, Run San Ramon offers three different race events: a 3K Fun Walk, 5K Run/Walk and 10K Run.
The races will take place on flat, fast and paved courses throughout the Bishop Ranch area of San Ramon.
Participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt, beverages, snacks and goodies.
Mayor's Cup trophies will be awarded to the winning pre-registered female/male participants. Trophies will be rewarded to winning overall female/male, and medals will be distributed to the top three finalists in each age group. The wading fountain and awards ceremony will follow the race.
Race-day registration is available at $40 per person.
Check-in and race-day registration begin at 6:30 a.m. at the San Ramon Community Center, 12501 Alcosta Blvd. in San Ramon. The 10K will begin at 8:15 a.m. while the 3K and 5K will begin at 8:20 a.m.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the city of San Ramon's community programs.
