The Concord Police Association is honored to present our 8th Annual Stars & Stripes 5K Run & Walk on Monday, July 4th, benefiting both the Family Justice Center of Concord and the Bay Area Crisis Nursery. The race has been growing each year with over 800 participants in the 5K and 120 children in the Kids Fun Run for 2016. We are preparing for over 900 5K participants this year running and walking a nice 3.1 mile route that you are sure to enjoy! Your entry fee includes a goody bag with great freebies, gift certificates, coupons and a Brenden Theaters movie ticket for each 5K participant! You will also receive a race t-shirt with a cool patriotic design! (we are also offering dri-fit race shirts in lieu of the standard cotton race shirts for an extra $7.00.)
The festivities start at 7:00am with day of registration and goody bag pick up, music and sponsors’ booths. The FREE Kids Fun Run sponsored by Sports Basement, Sky High Sports and Chili's will be held at 8:00am followed by the 5K at 8:15am. Our own home baseball team mascot, Stomper the Elephant from the Oakland A's will be on hand to visit with the kids, pose for photos and start off both races, greeting the kids as they cross the finish line for the Kid's Fun Run. Uncle Sam from the Singing Flag will also be joining us!
We will have 2 water stops/aid stations on the course at miles 1 & 2 and a ton of delicious and refreshing post-race goodies at the finish. After the race, grab a spot to watch Concord's entertaining 4th of July Parade starting at 10am, complete with floats, bands, equestrian & dance teams and more!
Lace up your shoes and get ready to start of your 4th of July celebration in a fun & healthy way with your loved ones, friends, neighbors and co-workers!
