Race Details

The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, Start 2 Finish Charlotte encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of the Firecracker 5k and Fun Run.

Baby jogging strollers will be permitted, however, please be mindful and start at the back of the group.

The 5k will finish at the Windyrush Country Club pool which is about a half mile from the elementary school parking lot. If you wish to have your bathing suit or other items transferred to the finish line, please place all items in your packet pick-up bag which will be marked with your race number. Look for the bag drop area at the finish line to pick up your bag.

The Family Fun Run, which is approximately a half mile loop, will start at 7:45pm from the 5k finish line. We ask that all children 6 and under have an adult accompany them on the run.

Join us after for a pool party with music, food and drinks. Please shower before entering the pool.


Awards will be announced around 8:30pm.

We look forward to celebrating the July 4th weekend with all of you and can't wait to see you out there!
