Come join us for the 1st Annual Firecracker 5k/Kids Dash! This is an Independence-Day themed event that is perfect for the whole family. Our all-new course features a visit to the Sister of Liberty Statue in Indian Foothills Park. Medals will be awarded to the top finishers in each age/gender category. Immediately following the 5k race, we will have a FREE Kids Dash around the perimeters of our large main field. We will also feature a ‘Best Dressed Patriot’ themed costume contest (you MUST participate and wear your costume during the race in order to be eligible for prizes).
