Join us in Bridgton, Maine for the 45th Annual 4 on the Fourth Road Race & Kids Fun Run!

Registration is Open!  

The links to register are below.  

Just a reminder, like every year, the first 500 to register qualify for free t-shirts.  And if you want to get a few more, the registration site is where you can order those too.  If you were one of the runners that had to defer last year due to the COVID situation, and qualified in the first 500 for a shirt, and/or ordered a shirt, Jim Cossey has already added you into the registration database, and has been reaching out to each of you with an email.  You don’t need to do a thing to register.

We remain (cautiously) optimistic we will be holding our wonderful race and related events on July 3-4, 2021.  Plus, as I mentioned last month, the South Main Street paving where we start the race looks good, so our normal, certified four mile race course beckons! I will continue to put out more updates here, we will update our social media, and Jim Cossey will be sending out email blasts to keep you informed.  

In the meantime, get outdoors when you can, get those miles in, and don’t forget to add a few hills.           

– Bill Graham, Race Director

The Race

The 4 on the Fourth is a classic road race held each summer in the heart of Maine’s lake region. The race starts in town and takes runners through a beautiful rolling course with a mix of hills, fields, and lake views, ending with a fast fourth mile and an exhilarating finish. 

To get a closer look at the course, take a look at this spectacular drone video generously provided by Mike Dana of Fryeburg.
