4th of July Races at the Beach | Race Round Up

correct 4th of july cover

With another big beach holiday upon us I thought this would be a great time to share with you all the local races that are taking place at the beach and surrounding areas. I will not be doing any racing, walking or even holiday workouts, but I hope that all of you get out there in your red, white and blue and take advantage of all the events going on around the little beach towns!

I love all the races that go out of Grove Park so enjoy the course and the beautiful beach bungalows along the way!
