4 Miles on the 4th of July-ish

Join us in celebrating our freedoms including the freedom to keep running! 

This year the tradition of the Firecracker4 will continue via a Virtual 4 mile event where we will run together but apart.  In keeping with social distancing guidelines in the interest of public health and safety we will be hosting a 4 mile run that registrants will complete when they want, where they want between June 28th and July 11th. We will have links to several certified 4 miles courses in NYS and some suggestions for other routes you can use.  by keeping the tradition alive and participating in the Virtual Firecracker4 4 mile or 1/2 mile Sparkler kids run you will be helping event organizers stay solvent and allow us to donate much needed funds to several charities. They depend on us and we depend on you. 

Check out the event swag and make sure to get your team together as the largest team of finishers will get money donated to their charity of choice.
