LAS VEGAS (June 25, 2014)— On Friday, July 4, 2014 Desert Sky Adventures (DSA), a Las Vegas based race management, training and running tour company dedicated to helping people run and walk for health and adventure, will host the RoadRunner Saloon 4th of July 5K Blast. The race starts at 7 a.m. at the RoadRunner Saloon at 9820 West Flamingo Road and follows the Western Beltway Trail. Entry fees are $40 before July 2. Registration is $45 after that time. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Wildland Firefighters Foundation, which supports the families of firefighters who have lost their lives.

The course allows runners of all levels to enjoy breathtaking views of the mountains and Strip. Runners can pick up their race packets at Red Rock Running Company (7350 W.

“Las Vegas has a fabulous running community, and we welcome runners of all ages and ability levels to run or walk with us,” said Molly Sheridan, DSA’s CEO and founder. “As we celebrate Fourth of July, we think it is fitting to run in support of the Wildland Firefighters Foundation, a non-profit that supports a modern day hero-firefighters killed or injured in the line of duty."
