Firecracker 4-Miler


Event Overview

Fit Right is proud to produce the Firecracker 4-Miler happening July 4th, 2014. This race will be in conjunction with the 51st annual Fort Vancouver Fireworks Celebration.

The Fort Vancouver Celebration is an all-day event that attracts 50,000 spectators. The daylong celebration ends with the largest fireworks display west of the Mississippi! The Firecracker 4-Miler will start at 5:30 pm, plenty of time to enjoy the festivities before and after the event. Just imagine running down that home stretch and having close to 50,000 people screaming and cheering for you. Pretty cool, huh? We think so.

Your participation in the race includes your entry to the Fort Vancouver Fireworks Celebration. For friends and family who wish not to run, no problem, they can purchase tickets to the Fort Vancouver Fireworks event and watch the race via a live feed of the race displayed on a jumbo-screen.
