and how to register.

The USATF Certified 5k course is a rolling loop around the Olde Providence neighborhood and kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy the Family Fun Run. The 5K is chip-timed using the state-of-the-art My Laps timing system. After you cross the finish line, cruise on over to our results tent for live results.

After the race join us for a pool party, music, food and drinks at Windyrush Country Club.

This race benefits three fantastic organizations: the Olde Providence Elementary Foundation, Let Me Run and Girls on the Run.

The mission of the Olde Providence Elementary School Foundation is to raise funds to provide a healthy, challenging and enriching environment that maximizes the learning experience of every student at Olde Providence Elementary School and prepares them to succeed in the 21st century.

Let Me Run inspires boys through the power of running to be courageous enough to be themselves, to build healthy relationships, and to live an active lifestyle.

Girls on the Run inspires girls to take charge of their lives and define the future on their terms.

A special thank you to ALL participants and the organizers and sponsors of the Firecracker 5K!
