Event Information

Join us for the Firecracker 5k on July 4 as we celebrate freedom by helping bring freedom to children trapped in slavery! All race proceeds benefit Mercy Project, a local non-profit aiming to eradicate slavery in Ghana, Africa. Come run with hundreds of your friends and family in the inaugural year of this College Station, TX race. The event will take place Friday, July 4, at 8AM in a College Station, TX location to be named soon. The race is designed for runners and walkers of all ages and we invite you to gather your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers to join us. To keep the price at a minimum and maintain a fun run atmosphere, chip-timing will not be offered for this race. All runners will receive a race t-shirt and post-race all-american goodies, watermelon and apple pie. Runners are encouraged to dress in America-themed costumes. The race fee is only $22 for adults and $15 for children 17 & under. This is part of the 2014 BCS Marathon Race Series.
