The 39th Annual April Fool’s 4-Miler will be run on March 28, 2020, no foolin’!!! Sign-up early and avoid last minute lines.

Race Factoids:

Named after April Fool

Longest continually run April Fool’s 4 Mile Road Race in the USA

In Salisbury, U.K. the race would be a 6.437376 K – how silly is that?

Speaking of the U.K.; The London Marathon and the April Fool’s 4-Miler both had their inaugural race on March 29, 1981…that’s about all they have in common.

The Beatles sang about The Fool On the Hill, this race features The Fool At the Circle (inside joke, unfortunately)

The largest hill in Salisbury is 8 feet…the race doesn’t go anywhere near it!

Salisbury has 7 miles of beautiful coastline…the race doesn’t go anywhere near that either!

Holds the record for the largest number of race participants all wearing the same bib number – in 2014 all 825 runners wore the number 0

Once again, the April Fool’s 4-Miler is a featured race in LOCO’s “Will Run For Beer” Race Series.
