The La Crosse Firecracker races were virtual in 2020, but looking into 2021, we are planning on having the race in person. Different precautions will be in place to help with virus spread risk mitigation, but it will be so great to see everyone again!
This year's race will take place on Sunday, July 4th. The 4 mile race will utilize the traditional route running from Riverside park, over the Cass St. Bridge to Pettibone beach and back. The 1 mile will be two loops around Veteran's Memorial Drive in Riverside Park. We will have the Firecracker Challenge that allows participants to participate in the 4 mile and 1 mile races at a discounted races. Check out the FREE Kids' Races to round out our family friendly event.
