Kiddos don't receive a Firecracker Run shirt in the Free Kids Run, so we've teamed up with SWEETS Ice Cream to create a Kids Pack option! They'll each receive an authentic youth Colorado Firecracker Run shirt, bib number, and other free stuff in their bag! Participation in Kids Run or 4K/4Mile is not necessary. *These sell out every year, so reserve yours before they're gone!


*Only 100 available (SOLD OUT)


*This is not a registration for the run.​
