Before you overindulge at the barbeque, then sit back to enjoy fireworks, why not kick-off your 4th of July morning with a healthy start by running or walking in the annual Run San Ramon.
This always popular Independence Day classic offers an event for everyone: 3K Fun Walk; 5K Run/Walk; and 10K Run. Proceeds from Run San Ramon will benefit the City of San Ramon’s community programs.
All three courses feature flat, fast, and paved surfaces, running throughout the monitored streets in the Bishop Ranch area of San Ramon (East of 680). Participants will receive commemorative T-shirt, beverages, snacks, and goodies provided by the sponsors. In addition, the always-popular wading fountain and awards ceremony will follow the race.
Mayor's Cup trophies will go to the winning pre-registered male/female San Ramon resident, (5K and 10K). Trophies will also be rewarded to winning overall male/female (5K and 10K). Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age division, 5-8, 9-12, 13-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, to 85+ (5K and 10K).
