Firecracker 4K Race

The annual Firecracker 4K provides the perfect start to our day long Central PA 4thFest celebration. In 2014, we had nearly 1100 registered participants. Thank you and congratulations to everyone who took part and helped with the race.

Now is the time to register for this year's event. The race will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 4th, 2015 on the Penn State campus. Runners and walkers of all skill levels and ages are encouraged to participate. As in the past, a digital timing system will be used to determine winners in various age categories and prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in all categories. Help us set another new record in 2015!!! Bring a friend, neighbor, or other family member and join in the fun!
