Running, Freedom, and Fireworks Help Celebrate the 23rd Annual Village Runner 4th of July 5K
Redondo Beach, CA – July 4, 2016

Before you fire up your BBQ and watch the red, white and blue fire work shows, come celebrate our country’s independence at the 23nd Annual Village Runner 4th of July 5K presented by UCLA Health. The race highlights a 5K Run and Community Walk. The race begins Saturday, July 4th, at 8 a.m., in Riviera Village, Redondo Beach, CA. Following the 5K, there will be the Firecracker Dash races for kids ages 12 and under. The Firecracker Dash begins at 9:30 a.m.

Bring out your American flags and patriotic clothing! Prior to the start of the race, there will be the Red, White, and Blue Costume Contest with cash prizes awarded for the best and most unique running costumes. All participants will receive a 4th of July Run t-shirt. There will be chip timing, age division awards and cash prizes to the top three overall male and female runners in the 5k run. All kids’ Firecracker Dash finishers receive medals too!

The men's overall winner and the women's overall winner for the 5K Run will be awarded the $200 cash prize. Second place winners are awarded $125, and third place winners are awarded $75. There will be a post-race party within walking distance of the finish line to continue the patriotic holiday celebration.

UCLA Health, which has continued its expansion to better serve the South Bay, is the event’s presenting sponsor and exclusive health care provider. UCLA Health now has offices in the South Bay communities of Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, and Torrance, and offers the best available service and state-of-the-art resources to its patients.

Clif Bar will serve its energy bars and Clif Shots, and Fresh Brothers Pizza will serve pizza samples at the event. Charity beneficiaries include after-school programs and athletic programs at South Bay-area high schools. There will also be a two-day Health & Wellness Expo.
