Firecracker is Going Virtual

We are very sad to announce that the 35th Annual Firecracker presented by the Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Club will become a virtual race this year.  We will still have all three distances available for the virtual event.  Prices will be adjusted for the event as follows:  1K Kid's Race is free, the 5K and 10K will be $25.  You don't have to run on the 4th of July either. The virtual results uploads for each distance will be available from July 1 through July 14.  Think about it - you can include Canada Day and Bastille Day as holidays for your run too if for some reason you can't run on the 4th of July. 

This is an important event for our club supporting some major beneficiaries, Teen Kitchen and the Red Cross of the Central Coast, as well as additional local charities and grants.  We hope you will register for the virtual event and embrace the situation in which we all find ourselves social distancing and sheltering in place.  Use your exercise time to go out and run or walk a 5k or 10k, or take your kids on a 1K around the neighborhood knowing that your registration fees and optional donations will be used wisely and distributed locally.  Remember - Rotary gives 100% - so we are going to try and keep the costs down this year in order to maximize our charitable giving.

Each participant who posts a time for their event will be able to print a customized finisher certificate of their time.  We will be mailing a customized Rotary social-distancing face mask and a race number to all participants in mid June.

If you had signed up to participate in the Run Santa Cruz series your points in this race will be counted towards those awards with validated results.

If you're part of a Rotary Caldwell Cup Team we'll count your event towards your club points.

If you are already registered for this race you will receiving an email with options to stay in the virtual race, defer, or donate your entry feel.  All registration screens have been adjusted to reflect the new pricing.
