Thank you Runners! Overall results here.

Welcome to the Firecracker 4 Road Race! The region’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. It is a great way to spend the day with the whole family.

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. This is a USATF Adirondack Club Team Championship and Saratoga Stryders Grand Prix Event.
