On the 4th of July, there’ll be lots of BBQs, lots of flags, lots of fireworks, and lots of feet! Thousands of folks will be at City Park in Fort Collins for the 17th annual ‘FireKracker 5K’; celebrating the birth of the nation while getting some exercise!  The event will begin with the National Anthem at 7:25 am followed immediately by the Citizen’s Race. The Elite Race will be at 8:30 with the Kids Race taking off at 9:10.

Be sure to ride your bike to the event- there won’t be any parking at City Park that day. They’ll have a bike valet, who’ll take care of your bike while you race!

You don’t have to RUN; you can walk or jog. Just as long as you’re having fun! Registration is underway; if you wait until race day to sign up, it will be $35 per person with no guarantee of a shirt. So sign up NOW!

Go America!
