ELMHURST – The race is on to register for the ninth-annual Community Bank of Elmhurst's "4 on the 4th" run this Independence Day.

Registration is officially open, but capped at 1,100 participants to ensure a safe race. Runners and joggers can sign up online for the four-mile race that starts and finishes at Elmhurst College.

The race starts at 7:15 a.m., and the one -kilometer kids' run starts at 8:20 a.m. on July 4. There is no limit on the number of participants for the kids' run.

The Elmhurst Running Club partners with Community Bank of Elmhurst to produce the race. Registration for the four-mile run is $25 ahead of time and $30 the day of the race, if there are still spots open. The kids' run costs $10.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Elmhurst Children's Assistance Foundation and local youth running programs.
