Run, White, and Blue with the Ronald McDonald House Firecracker 5K

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida hosts its annual Firecracker 5K, presented by Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, on Saturday, June 29th. The race starts at 7am, and participants have the option to run or walk the 5K course, which begins and ends at Seville Quarter. This event is fun for the whole family and even features a FREE Kids Fun Run, presented by WEAR Cares.
Registration is $35 and includes your race bib, t-shirt, and finisher’s medal. Registration will increase to $40 on Friday, June 28th. Packet pickup will also be happening Friday, June 28th from 4-7pm at Apple Annie’s (inside Seville Quarter). Can’t make it to packet pickup? Be sure to arrive early on race day to grab your packet from 6:00-6:45am. For those who would like to support the House but can’t attend the race, you can register for the virtual run/walk option. Virtual racers will also receive a t-shirt, race bib, and finisher’s medal.
Kick off your Fourth of July by running in your best red, white, and blue attire and support families every step of the way. Additional awards will be given to our top finishers in each age group, and we invite everyone to enjoy the Post-Race Party, sponsored by Pensacola News Journal, inside Seville Quarter.
