Lopez Island Lions Club Fourth of July Fun Run/Walk. The 4th of July celebration on Lopez begins with the Fun Run/Walk, sponsored by the Lopez Lions Club. The event takes place on scenic courses through a pastoral setting with water views. The shirts have a Lopez Island scene. Enjoy the parade and other 4th of July activities in the village following the awards. All three courses are electronically timed, start and end in Lopez Village, are mildly challenging, and have a long, gradual downhill finish. The 10K course is point-to-point; the 5K and 1-mile courses are out and back. Unique Lopez awards are given to the first overall male and female finisher in the 10K, 5K Run, 5K Walk, and 1-mile events. Awards are also given to the first three male and female finishers in each age division in the 5K and 10K events.
