6 Mile Course

Live In Person 6 Mile Run/Walk in Downtown Indy:

The Firecracker 6 has traditionally been an event that highlights both our nations independence and our beautiful Indianapolis community including the city of Indianapolis. We want to continue this tradition even with COVID so are partnering with White River State Park to host the event out of Military Park which provides us ample space for social distancing, and a safe route allowing a stretched out socially distanced corral start. We love running these streets and paved trails, and we know you will too! 

6 Mile Course Map
The first half of the 6 mile course is the same as the 6k course, starting on Blackford Street then traversing both sides of the Canal Walk, then up to Michigan street and back to finish in Military Park.  Runners and walkers alike will enjoy scenic views of White River State Park, and the downtown Indianapolis skyline when crossing the Old Washington Street pedestrian bridge.
