My name is Mary Vanderminden and I am a member of the race committee for the Firecracker 4.
Our organization is a 501c3 not-for profit donating proceeds to encourage health & fitness within the community.
We are planning our 9th annual road race on July 4th, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. in the beautiful city of Saratoga Springs, NY. The race distance is a USATF certified 4 mile course.
We will again be hosting the USATF Adirondack Team Championship race along with the 4 mile Grand Prix.
This year we are targeting 4,000 runners. We will liven things up by having more than a dozen live musical venues along the course!
We would like to get the word out about our race to interested runners. If you have a calendar it would be great if you would list us.
The race is a great value at $25 registration fee until July 2. We have great shirts, runner bags, vendor village, refreshments and a great band at the start/finish area. Cash prizes are available and awards are in 5 year age categories. We also offer team competition.
Create a “Run Your Colors” team. The team with the most registered runners (running the race optional) will have $1,000 donated in their name to the charity of their choice.
On-line registration and race information is available through our web site, http://www.firecracker4.com/. Check it out, it’s a great event!
