Celebrate Independence Day with a morning run/walk in Breckenridge, MI. There will be an 8K course for runners and walkers.

The race starts and ends at Breckenridge Splash Park, 105 Sexton Street, Breckenridge, MI. Packet pickup and day of registration starts at 7:00am. The race starts at 8:30am.

Participants will start in waives one minute apart. A waive will consist of a single individual unless a group of participants have sheltered in place together in the 14 days before the race.

Awards for top Male and Female finishers: overall, 19 and under, ages 20-29, 30-39, and Masters group (40 and over).

$20 per person until June 28. $25 after June 29 and on Race Day. Tank tops given to participants as supplies last (based on registration date). The race will be limited to 120 participants.

All proceeds go to support the Breckenridge Area Action Committee and the work they do as a committee of the Gratiot Area Chamber of Commerce to support businesses in Breckenridge and Wheeler.

BE ADVISED: Runners will be asked to complete a COVID-19 self-screening before racing (see here: https://www.mmdhd.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/COVID-19-Workplace-Health-Screening.pdf). For everyone's safety, all participants and attendees will be expected to bring their own water and refreshments to the race. It will also be required that all attendees, participants, and volunteers follow Michigan mandated social distancing and masking procedures. The Race Director reserves the right to change this to a virtual race in the event of emergency restrictions due to the COVID-19 virus. Of course, we would greatly prefer to see everyone on the course on Independence Day!
