Join us for the Lifescape 4th of July Classic on July 4th, 2020 (Formerly known as the MELD/YSN Classic).

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 Run and Walk is a race for the ages! Join us in celebrating our great nation through this wonderful event. Last year nearly 900 racers lined up on the morning of July 4th!  This is a race for everyone whether you are an experienced runner looking to win prize money, this is your first race, or you are just looking for a fun event to do with your family. You 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, and an all you can eat pancake breakfast.

Race t-shirts and sizes are only guaranteed through June 15th. There will be additional t-shirts ordered but sizes cannot be guaranteed after the cutoff date. Our stylish one of a kind race T-shirt made by Rockford Art Deli.

This year we are adding a post-race breakfast and celebration at the Rockford City Market Pavilion. The breakfast is included in the run/walk registrations. Non-runners/walkers and race spectators are welcome to join the post-race fun, but if they would like breakfast it will be $5 at the event. The after party will include live music from the local band Long-shot, awards, refreshments, and breakfast!  The post-race breakfast and celebration starts immediately following the 8k Run. Hot Cakes on the Go will be providing all you can eat pancakes. We will also have breakfast sausage and refreshments.
