2023 Folsom Firecracker

Tuesday, July 4th - 2 Mile, 5K, 10K Run or Walk

Join us for our 12th Annual Folsom Firecracker. It is a great way to kick off the 4th of July before your festivities with family and friends.

Beneficiary: The event will benefit the burn prevention programs at Shriners Children’s Northern California, located here in Sacramento County off Hwy. 50 adjacent to the UC Davis Med Center.  Shriners Children's mission statement is to provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.  

Registration includes a race t-shirt, chip timing, eligibility for age group & special division awards, and a sparkly red-white-and-blue finisher's medal.

Youth Discount: A $5 discount is offered for youth participants ages 1 to 17 years for the 2 Mile, 5K and 10K.

Military Discount: New this year - we are offering a reduced cost entry to all US Military - Active Duty, Veterans and Reserves. Please note that if you register in this category, you will need to show your Military ID card when you pick up your bib.  

Special Divisions: During registration, you will have the chance to enter one of our Special Divisions for your race distance. Special divisions are:

  • Adaptive Athlete (athletes with physical, developmental, and/or intellectual disabilities);
  • US Military - Active Duty, Veteran, or Reserves;
  • Baby Jogger/Stroller;
  • Dog Division

There will be prizes for top finishers in each special division (based on net time) and you will still be ranked in your respective age group if you enter a special division. This is our way of recognizing those who have served our country, parents and caregivers who are participating with a little one in a stroller, athletes with physical, developmental, and/or intellectual disabilities, and those who choose to participate with their four-legged furry exercise partner.
