Event Cancelled – Switches to Virtual 4 Mile Run.

Due to the realities of the current public health situation we are canceling all in person events related to the 14th annual Firecracker4 scheduled for Saturday July 4th 2020. The health and safety of our participants and our community at large is always the utmost priority in everything we do. We understand how much runners want to get back out there and race just as much as we want to be able to put on incredible active lifestyle events but at this point in time this is not going to be possible by July. For those that are itching to run for time we are replacing the in -person event with a virtual 4 mile run.

Read the full statement here.

Welcome to the Firecracker 4 Road Race! The state’s best 4th of July race kicks off the Saratoga Independence Day All-American Celebration which includes the 4 mile and kids 1 mile races, parade, vendors and fireworks.

The signature 4 mile event starts downtown on Broadway at the Saratoga Springs City Center and is chip-timed with gun and net times. Awards in 5-year increments. Special award categories for Military and Public Safety participants.
