Manistee Firecracker 5K 2018 is heating up!

The 2018 Manistee Firecracker 5K is sure to be the best one yet!  

This year's race will be June 30th, 2018, with the 1K Fun Run at 8am and the 5K Run/Walk at 8:15am.  We will once again feature T-shirts with registration, with Tech-shirts $5 extra.  

Bring your family and enjoy the view of the lake as you run this fun but challenging course!

The 5K raises funds for the Manistee Community Track Project.  The community track finally opened this spring - but we still need to add bleachers, a press box, timing equipment, etc.
