The FireKracker 5k is the Fort Collins Running Club’s big race for the year, usually attracting around 1000 participants on the Fourth of July. This year’s edition—the 12th running of it—happens to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of City Park.
This will be a zero waste event, meaning we are trying to divert 85% or more of event related waste away from the landfill through recycling and composting.
It is a must-do race and registration is now open. You can conveniently sign up online and pay NO additional fees (since the running club is absorbing them) at Running Guru. Or you may sign up in person at either Runner’s Roost or Foot of the Rockies as noted on our official event page.
Note that FCRC members get a $5 discount, but to get it while registering online, you need to enter a discount code. If you were a FCRC member by May 31, 2012, you should have received a discount code from us in your e-mail. E-mail us if you are a FCRC member and need a discount code again.
If you are not already a member, join the club today!
