Sacred Heart Loretto 2020 Independence Day Virtual Race

One of the Tennessee Valley's favorite 5Ks is back -
The Independence Day 5K - with a twist!

This year’s Independence Day 5K will be a Virtual/Hybrid event. As always, we’ll offer great original t-shirts, and each participant will also receive a custom medal!

Want to know more about this year’s run? It’s simple. You have the option to do one of two options, the virtual run or the hybrid run. You can also choose if you want your t-shirt and medal shipped to you free of charge or if you want to come to the event on Saturday, July 3rd and pickup your swag that day.

All participants who pickup their items in person will also be registered to win a chance at $100.

The virtual run gives you the option to run or walk your 5K wherever you want anytime from June 20th through July 6th, and submit your time via our online form so we can post your results.

The hybrid run gives you the option to come to the event at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Saturday, July 3rd and run the actual course. However due to Covid and safety guidelines you will be required to provide your own transportation to the starting line. Also the event will not be timed. You can run anytime between 8:00 and 9:00am.

Once you have completed the run either virtually or in person please stop by the registration table to pick up your t-shirt and custom medal. All participants who stop by the day of the event will also be registered to win a chance at 100$. Participants can stop by anytime on July 3rd between 8:00 to 10:30 am.

In its 28th year, the Independence Day 5K is part of the century-old Fourth of July celebration at Sacred Heart Church in Loretto, TN. More than 4,000 runners have taken part in this annual event. Proceeds benefit Sacred Heart School.
