July 4 is normally a day of cookouts, patriotism, and fireworks. But due to the current state of the world, 2020 is different than normal. This year, we're going to have a different kind of celebration with the Firework 5K virtual run/walk! With the Firework 5K, you'll receive a commemorative race medal and a pair of American flag-themed crew socks in the weeks following the event.
How does a virtual 5K work, you ask? Unlike a normal 5K, a virtual 5K allows you to run (or walk) in any location. You are able to participate on your own (following social distancing guidelines) at your own speed, starting whenever is convenient for you. Follow the following steps:
A portion of proceeds ($5 from each registration) from the Firework 5K will benefit Louisville's Waterfront Park. The Waterfront isn't just a place, it's an experience. An experience that's different for everyone. It's a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city. It's a natural haven for quiet reflection. It's an ongoing festival of sounds and sights. It's your favorite band blasting into the night sky. And it's right here, accessible to all. With events being canceled or postponed and funding being cut to agencies like Waterfront Park, our support is needed now more than ever.
Special thanks to Paul Anthony Schuhmann for his amazing firework photos from various downtown events at Waterfront Park. Follow him on social media @pas812!

All participants will also receive a pair of the American flag themed socks!
We may be running or walking the Firework 5K virtually, but we can all listen to the same tunes while we're doing it! Download our Firework 5K playlist on Spotify, featuring patriotic and firework-themed upbeat music for you to enjoy during your 5K experience.
