The Firecracker Mile is one of the best 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.
Packet Pickup and Race-day 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).
This is a USATF certified (2019) 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.
Splits are read after each quarter mile. Eastside Racing Company will provide official times for all runners.
In addition to cash prizes, trophies will be awarded to the top 3 men and top 3 women.
Medals will be awarded to the top 50 men and top 50 women.
T-shirts for all pre-registered runners.
Register before June 12 to be guaranteed a shirt in your size with the new logo!
