2023 Event Recap

On behalf of Fleet Feet of Roanoke, the Town of Vinton, and Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA, thank you for your support of our 12th annual event! We loved seeing so many friends out in 4th of July attire to celebrate the holiday with us and run for a worthy cause.

  • We had just shy of 500 participants for our return event on the Vinton course. Congratulations to all of our runners, walkers, and age group and overall winners!
  • A special thanks to our volunteers and staff. We appreciate you generously sharing your holiday with us to support this event.
  • Thank you to our event sponsors! This event would not have been possible without the incredible show of financial and in-kind donations from community partners. Please see a list of those businesses below.
  • Thank you to all who donated to our Four on the 4th fundraising campaign. We raised $2,804 in addition to registration proceeds.

Your involvement in this event benefited Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA, grossing more than $50,000 to help advance our mission.

Special thanks to Bailey Jenkins of Jenkins & Associates Real Estate Group for capturing these photos of the event.
