Come join us for a mile race on the route of the Longview, Washington Go 4th Festival's July 4th parade. It starts at the historic Monticello Hotel and finishes near Martin's Dock at beautiful Lake Sacajawea Park. Hosted by the Cowlitz Valley Runners, in partnership with Cowlitz on the Move and the Longview Parks & Recreation Department, and sponsored by Happy Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics, the Child & Adolescent Clinic, Red Leaf Coffee and the Monticello Hotel, this is a fun event for the whole family. Hundreds of fans (lined up to watch the parade that will follow the race) will cheer the runners and walkers on this fast, flat, scenic course. The focus is on family fun, so the entry fee is minimal. In keeping with the community, non-profit volunteer philosophy of the Go 4th Festival, the Cowlitz Valley Runners will apply all proceeds to scholarships for high school seniors pursuing higher education.
Awards: The top male and female finishers will win a certificate for a salmon dinner donated by the Kelso-Longview Kiwanis Club. Ribbons will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers, and to the first male and female finishers over 50 and under 13 years of age.
