The Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 stating that the original thirteen colonies regarded themselves as independent and no longer part of Great Britain. Today, we continue to enjoy the original freedoms gained by our forefathers and we celebrate by freely running 5k’s, having barbeques, and sharing time with friends.
Friends on the Fourth 5k Run/ Walk
The Friends on the Fourth 5k Run/ Walk is a great way to start your day. Our loop course rolls slightly around the Pease Tradeport, beginning and ending near the Great Bay Community College.
Friends in Action
The race raises money and awareness for Friends in Action whose mission is to enhance the lives of people with developmental disabilities by creating inclusive social and recreational opportunities. Friends in Action is a partnership between the Portsmouth School Department and a working group of parents and community members.
So run our race to support a great cause and don’t forget to wear your red, white, and blue.
