The Firecracker Mile

is one of the fastest miles in Midwest. Whether you are racing for a cash prize, trophy, medal, or for the joy of the run, this is the race for you.

When

Saturday July 4, 2015

Packet Pickup and Raceday Registration will be from 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. in the CVS parking lot at the corner of Crooks and 14 Mile.

The race will start at 9:00 a.m. Arrive early because 14 Mile Rd. will close about 8:30 a.m.

Parking is available either behind the Red Olive restaurant (in the same shopping center as CVS), or at the Kyoto restaurant parking lot (just west of Crooks on 14),

or at the end of the race (east of Main, or south of 14 so you aren't trapped by the parade).

The Course

This is a USATF certified (2009) flat mile. The race starts at Crooks Rd. and runs straight down 14 Mile Rd. to the finish line at Main Street. Thousands of spectators and fans line the entire course to cheer you throughout the run.
