The Perfect Patriotic Race Outfit!

I recently signed up for the La Palma 5K this year which takes place on the 4th of July. I usually like to dress up to celebrate and kick the morning off with some festive fun. This year is no different and I’m already scouting for options! I thought I’d share a few awesome and patriotic finds for anyone else running on the 4th too!

First off you must start with fun headpiece. Usually I search the dollar spot at Target to find something. You could also do a fun headband or hat. If you wear something with anything that moves make sure you pair it up with a visor so that it stays on your head when your run!

Top Row L – R: Headband, Patriotic Liberty Crown, Sunglasses, Head Boppers

Next up is a shirt or tank that will have you crossing the finish line in style. Because I’m running a shorter race, the fabric doesn’t matter for me, so I will try to find one of these ones locally at Target or Walmart. Or if you have a red or blue tank just wear one of those and try to accessorize in other ways.

Middle Row L – R: Run Heart ShirtStars and Stripes ShirtFlag Shirt, I love this Reebok shirt too.

Onto bottoms… Because the race is on the 4th of July, I know it will be hot and I will want to run in shorts but because it’s a festive race that means I’ll for sure be donning a Sparkle Athletic Skirt! They are the best to run in and people always comment how fun they are. I haven’t decided what color I’m going to wear yet this year.

Socks are important too! There are a ton of fun USA sock and it just depends on how much you want to spend on them. There are compression and non compression options, and honestly for a 5K, I’m going to opt for just a regular cotton sock that’s fun and patriotic. As for shoes, most of the time I’d run in my regular running shoes but I just had to post these because they are amazing!

This site has a TON of cool ideas as well and Dick’s Sporting Goods has a bunch of stuff too! Get out there and kick off the day of celebrating your freedom and join a race!
