Organiser's Description

Join us for the Lifescape 4th of July Classic Run/Walk (Formerly known as the MELD/YSN Classic).
Register by the end of April 2023 for your early bird discount!
This race is in memory of Joe Marino and his contributions to Rockford's 4th of July celebration and to our community.
Lifescape 4th of July Classic is a race for the ages! This is a race for everyone whether you are an experienced runner, this is your first race, or you are just looking for a fun event to do with their family. This race is a wonderful way to celebrate our nation and support a local nonprofit. 
Racers have the choice of running an 8k, a 2-mile, or participating in the 1-mile family fun walk. All racers will receive race swag, including finisher medals, stylish one of a kind race T-shirts, and....  PANCAKES! After the race, all participants are invited to make the short walk to the Downtown Rockford City Pavilion (Where City Market is held). This race includes a Post Race Pancake Breakfast! We will have pancakes, plus plenty of other fresh breakfast foods and refreshments.
Covid-19 protocols and guidance will be communicated as we get closer to race day.
