Come join us for the 39th annual Derby Firecracker Race on the 4th of July! Pick between a certified 4 mile course or a fast certified 1 mile course. Enjoy a looped course that begins and end in Derby's High Park. A cash reward to our fastest male and female runners in each race of $50.00 will be awarded as well as age group awards!
Shirts this year will be tri-blend shirts! Finisher medals will be given to all runners! If you or somebody you know would like to volunteer, let the race director know. The races are chip-timed by the experienced crew of Timer Guys!
Kids pricing is $10.00 less during signup.
