Enjoy a summer evening of fun and celebration at the 9th Annual Charlotte Firecracker 5k and Family Fun Run Hosted By Windyrush Country Club.
Bring the whole family!
The post race party just got better! Enjoy the beautiful Windyrush pool after your run (don't forget there will be a bag drop so you can change)!
The 5k course is a rolling loop around the Olde Providence neighborhood and kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy the Family Fun Run. The 5K is chip-timed using the state-of-the-art My Laps timing system. After you cross the finish line, cruise on over to our results tent for live results.
After the race join us for a pool party, music, food and drinks.
