Can't make it to San Marino on July 4th? Join a Shadow Run!
For the second year, we will be offering those who can't be in San Marino on July 4th an option to run/walk and raise money to support the JP Blecksmith Leadership Foundation, the same as you would in San Marino. Shadow Runs bolster our awareness and fundraising efforts across the country. So if you can’t make the event in San Marino, we’d love you to register for the Shadow Run. (Official Race T-Shirt Included!)
