Why the 12K Distance?
A 12K is 7.4 miles, a distance all patriotic runners achieve on Independence Day! Two other “classic” running events in America are also 12K’s, Bloomsday and Bay to Breakers. Never run a 12K? Great news, you will achieve a personal best after finishing this event!
Is this Coronado’s official Independence Day Run?
Yes! The Crown City Classic is Coronado’s official Independence Day Run. 2018 marks the 44th year of this annual race and has a great tradition of always running on the 4th of July in Coronado- “the Crown City”.
