July 4 is the biggest racing day of the year and there are many races to choose. Below are some of the most popular in the area. For some, it is not too late to register online and beat the price increase on race day. Since July 4th is on a Monday. I have included the Madeira Mile and Pioneer Run as well.
If you want one closer to where you live, check the club calendar for more races.
