The race will be capped at 2,500 runners. Registration is $25 or $35 the day of the race. For the first time this year, people can register to “run in spirit” (i.e., just buy a shirt and cheer on a runner), for $17.50. Registration is at http://cooperyoung4miler.racesonline.com.
The Cooper-Young Festival Friday 4 Miler, which kicks off the Cooper-Young Festival, is the largest annual fundraiser for the Cooper-Young Community Association. Last year, the race set a record by raising some $64,000 for programs that improve the community.
