Festive family fun to kick off the 4th of July! Join us at the biggest patriotic party in the Sarasota area for a festive 4 Mile Race around the lake at Nathan Benderson Park, just before sunset and the annual fireworks display. Experience the feel of a major race with crowds cheering you on as you celebrate Independence Day with a patriotic themed race just before sundown. All participants will receive a race shirt, finisher's medal, glow gear and the support of a cheering crowd all along the lake at Nathan Benderson Park. Bands at the starting and finish line, plus food and beverages at the after party and VIP parking for the fireworks make this race an event not to be missed. Come early for the Kids' Dashes at 6:30pm and get the whole family involved in the summer fun.
