The Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce will once again celebrate the birth of our nation by supporting those who choose to run, walk or bike on a section of it.
The chamber is sponsoring the 29th annual 4th of July Biathlon and 5K, which starts and finishes at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Hillsboro.
The early bird entry fee is $25 for the 5K run, $35 for the individual biathlon or $55 for a two-person team biathlon entry before June 18. The price increases to $35 for the 5K, $55 for the individual biathlon and $65 for the team biathlon after June 18, and registrants after this date are not guaranteed a shirt.
Similar to last year, the course will begin at the Montgomery County Courthouse, with a trek down the North Road and back completing the running portion. The biathletes and cyclists will then take on the North Road once again to complete the 15-mile bike ride.
The event will be chip-timed by Final Lap Race Management, with prizes awarded to the top three males and females in the 5K, the top three in each age group, the top three in the individual biathlon – men and women, and the top teams – co-ed, female and male.
Everyone who registers by June 18 will receive a tech shirt, done by T-Shirts Ink of Hillsboro.
Packets can be picked up at Fusion on June 17, or can be picked up the day of the race starting at 6:30 a.m. on the courthouse lawn. Athletes can also register the day of the race, but are not guaranteed a shirt. Participants in the biathlon are encouraged to arrive early to set up their bicycles in the transition area.
