Stewartville Summerfest 3 and 5 Mile Run - July 4, 2018
The annual Stewartville Summerfest Fourth of July races will take place once again this year on Wednesday, July 4.
The five-mile run begins at 8 a.m. and the three-mile run begins at 9 a.m. Runners can compete in either or both races. There is also a free kids half-mile run at 10:30 a.m.
All races start and finish in Stewartville's beautiful Florence Park. The race is sponsored by the Stewartville Cross Country Boosters and covers all types of running surfaces beginning with a local street, playground, paved bike trail, gravel road, paved highway, grassy meadow and woodland finishing next to the pond in Florence Park. Runners are not on any one surface for more than a half a mile at a time. The Booster Club has donated money to local youth groups and organizations each year as well as support the High School CC teams.
