Kick off your 4th of July by participating in a fun and healthy event with friends and family. Whether you are a first time runner/walker or a race enthusiast, you are welcome to run or walk towards a healthier you!


Due to the current health and safety concerns, we are not completely sure we will be able to host the race as-scheduled. Registration may open on June 1. Please watch for updates as we continually monitor the COVID-19 related developments.



Last year, approximately 300 runners came out on a beautiful July 4th morning to run the 5K/10K! Thank you to Red River Runners for providing the timing for the race. Here are the finisher results: Firecracker 2019 Results FINAL
