Join us for the 2017 Firecracker 5000 on July 4th at 9 pm at Magnuson Park, Seattle. WA Registration and more details will be posted on May 15

 

The 2016 Firecracker 5000 is not being held.  The City of Seattle changed its permitting fee structure at the outset of 2016, and our fees for a midnight run on well-traveled city streets requiring 30 or more police officers more than TRIPLED. 

Since the 2015 Firecracker 5000 did not make money, we realized we needed to look for an alternative, well-lighted site to keep the midnight tradition alive.  As of May 1, without such a site becoming evident, we decided to not have a 2016 event, but work beginning then to have the event re-born in 2017 at a new location, with new sponsors, and with some new features to make the event more unique!  See you in 2017 for Firecracker 5000!
