Rotary Club of Kernersville 4th of July 5k Run & Parade
July 4, 2022. Race starts at 8 am, parade at 9 am

Kernersville Elementary School

Since 1990, the Rotary Club of Kernersville has managed the Kernersville July 4th Parade through downtown Kernersville.  Veterans lead the parade and are given special recognition. There are a wide range of parade entries and attendance is high among participants and parade-goers alike.

The parade will start at 9am at Kernersville Elementary School and end on Broad St. by Bank of NC. Parade ends at approximately 10:30 am. May distribute candy but do not throw into crowd for safety. There is no parking for personal vehicles at the school.

In 1997, the Rotary Club began an annual 4th of July 5K Race that precedes the 4th of July Parade. The route follows the parade route through downtown, so participants get a chance to run before a large, cheering crowd. Thanks to generous sponsors as well as entry fees, this is one of our club’s largest fundraisers of the year.  Proceeds go to support the many projects our club manages to benefit the local community.

Prize money and trophies are available to top race finishers! Visit  prior the event to pre-register.
