After a one-year hiatus, the Firecracker 5000 emerges like a phoenix as a reborn event for 2017 and beyond.  We still like the late-in-the-day aspect, but we didn't like the fact that the "firecracker" aspect was minimal at the Seattle Center on July 3rd.  By moving to Magnuson Park, with its Kite Hill view of the Kirkland fireworks display, we actual come closer to achieving our original intent.

CNW members make sure to use your discount!!!

On-line registration opens May 4 and closes July 4 at noon!

The Fourth of July

The race will start and finish at the Magnuson Park / Sand Point Sports Meadow in northeast Seattle.  Use either entry – at NE 65th Street or NE 74th Street and Sand Point Way NE.  Main parking areas are at the large central parking lot a 400-meter walk to the Sports Meadow (directly off NE 74th Street) and three large lots located along NE 65th Street and Lakeshore Drive.

We will have a kids 400-meter dash (quarter mile) at 8:30 p.m., followed by the 5k event at 9 p.m.  Bring and wear your headlamp, and be prepared for glow sticks, special lighting, and sparklers along the way.
