The 16th annual Independence Day morning foot race is organized by the Greencastle Parks and Recreation Department as the kick off event to the annual Friends of the Park Association of Putnam County's Celebrate "4" Celebration.

Mother Nature graced the runners and walkers that morning with a "cooling" rain shower, which didn't stop the contestants from as far away as Minnesota, Missouri, Georgia and Washington.
