July 3 – 5, 2020 | TIME & LOCATION OF YOUR CHOICE

Based on CDC guidelines and our local government recommendations, we’ve made the decision to convert the Firecracker 5K/1 Mile for the Troops presented by Leidos into a virtual race. This decision was made to protect participants, staff members, volunteers and our overall community.

We believe that the Firecracker 5K/1 Mile for the Troops presented by Leidos continuing in a virtual fashion will allow you to connect with other participants in a powerful way. Our goal is to create something that you can still look forward to and participate in, while adhering to social distancing. 

Please remember to follow all social distancing guidelines. Pick a time and location where you can run safely and keep your distance. You have 3 days in which to complete the event and log in your results. We want to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy.

With all that being said, what better way to celebrate Independence Day than to run or walk a 5K or 1 Mile while supporting the local military through USO-Metro!
