The tradition continues on the streets of downtown Ann Arbor preceding the Ann Arbor Jaycees 4th of July parade…. 

3 events to choose from:

  • Run or walk our classic Firecracker 5K (3.1 miles) on our flat and fast course!
  • Try our Mile Fun Run! A relaxed, non-competitive course awaits runners and walkers of all ages who want to show their Firecracker fervor but with a little less mileage. No timing… just a fun, friendly frolic on the Fourth of July!
  • Our littlest firecrackers are invited to make a bang all their own in our Kids’ 200-Meter Dash. Open to competitors ages 8 and under, our Kids’ Dash offers children the opportunity to soar like eagles to the finish line, completing their race at the same finish line as Mom or Dad!
  • Please note that to guarantee a race T-shirt in your size, you must register at least 2 weeks before race day.

All events are walker-friendly!
