Run, skip, hop, gallop, lolly gag or moon walk on July 4th with your friends and family to support Palmer Lake Elementary School at the 38th Annual July 4th Fun Run. This event kicks off the 4th of July festivities in the Tri Lakes Area and supports the children of PLES. The gorgeous and fast 4-mile race begins at 7 a.m. on Thursday, July 4 at the Palmer Lake Sante Fe Trailhead and ends in Monument in time for the parade. Transportation is also available back to Palmer Lake following the run. This family-friendly healthy event will bring the community together once again after the fires. There is also a kid’s fun run with prizes.

Proceeds from this event benefit PLES PTO and will allow the school to provide fun family and community activities, field trips, library books, wish lists for teachers, and school supplies.

Packet Pick-up: We’ve got the goods. We want to give you the goods. Feel free to pick up for your teammates, friends, family members, and well, yourself. We STRONGLY encourage you to pick up your packet before race day. If you pick up your packet before race day, you will be entered into the most amazing drawing for the coolest prizes ever.
