Will Fourth of July races set another record in 2017?

The fireworks, streamers, and patriotic pants are about to bust out this weekend and early next week for America’s favorite summer holiday. But it turns out that the Independence Day is also a favorite for running newbies and veterans alike. According to Running USA , a nonprofit organization that tracks road-racing trends, the Fourth of July is the second most popular holiday for runners and racers. The number of finishers on Independence Day has been on the upswing, increasing by 13 percent last year and hitting a record high of 329,620 finishers. (In 2013, the previous record, the number was 314,860.) Races on July 4 trail behind Thanksgiving , which tallied 901,753 finishers in 2015. The total number of running events on the Fourth also set an all-time record in 2016, growing by 18 percent to reach 586 races of varying distances.
