Downtown Indy has played host to this event annually, and we are beyond excited to return to the live in person event for 2021. Firecracker 6 offers both a 6k, and a 6 Miler giving participants of all abilities a challenge to kick off their 4th of July. To assure a safe race with adjustments for COVID-19 safety we will host the 2021 Firecracker 6 at the beautiful White River State Park starting/finishing in Military Park and running/walking on surrounding streets, paved trails, and the Downtown Indy Canal. This area is a favorite for local runners/walkers, and showcases countless beautiful views along the river including some of our absolute favorite viewpoints of the city skyline. The race is conveniently located by several parking garages, the Indianapolis Zoo, Victory Field, Indiana State Museum, Eiteljorg Museum, and of course it is one of the best viewpoints for evening firework celebrations.

Firecracker 6 partners with Team RWB through raising donations from participants, and by donating a portion of the event proceeds. Majority of the funds raised stays with the Indianapolis Chapter, but a portion also goes to National RWB. 

The mission of Team RWB is "To enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity." Our local chapter here in Indy offers monthly training, racing, and social gathering opportunities to the team. Members are both civilian, and veterans encouraging all to mingle, support one another in training, and to provide accountability as they carry out their mission. Through funds raised via Firecracker 6 they will be able to support the veterans in both racing, and financially covering costs for the social outings were members truly connect as friends. 

We couldn't be happier to support a great group of people who truly love their neighbors, specifically veterans, while using our sport as the catalyst to connect & motivate.
