Come out for the 3rd annual Columbus Firecracker 5k on July 4th! This is a fairly flat course (with one surprise hill) and it's proved to be very fast for a few in the past especially Charles Ware (2011) with a blistering record shattering time of 15:13.2. The course meanders through some beautiful countryside and takes you through tree lined neighborhoods.

Registration includes a great tee shirt and lots of post-race goodies. This year we offer registration for an entire family  for only $48. A Family is defined as one or both parents and all children that are 12 years old or younger. Any children that are 13 years and older must register as an individual. All family members must be in the same household. Family registration includes two t-shirts and additional t-shirts may be purchased for $8.00 each.

The race proceeds help fund The Shepherds Feast, a Christmas dinner held at the Polk County Middle School that shares the Christmas spirit with the citizens of Polk County.
