Heading for Home 

What better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a footrace, some baseball and fireworks? For the second year in a row, the Spokane Indians are opening up their home field to hundreds of runners. The Pennant Run features 1K and 5K courses that wind through the Spokane Fairgrounds, with both races ending in a victorious lap around the bases at Avista Stadium. The finish line is, of course, home plate. There’s also a Little Slugger’s Dash for kids. Participants get a technical T-shirt, while winners receive an engraved bat saluting their efforts. Everyone gets a ticket to the baseball game that evening, and fireworks will cap off the day.

Best of all, proceeds from entry fees will benefit Wounded Warriors, the organization that helps severely injured service members as they transition back to civilian life. “The Wounded Warriors, they touch a lot of lives,” says Indians Promotions Coordinator Alex Capeloto.

Pennant Run, July 4 at 10 am. $15-$30, kids under 3 free. Avista Stadium, 602 N. Havana St. spokaneindianspennantrun.com (535-2922)
