In 2011, I hosted the Firecracker Triple over 4th of July weekend. Last year, it was the Firecracker Double the weekend before the 4th of July. This year since the 4th of July falls on a Thursday, I will be hosting the Firecracker Quadzilla. That's four marathons (or half marathons) in four days starting on July 4. All four events are in the Portland (OR) metro area. Come to Portland and enjoy the holiday weekend in the Pacific Northwest!
