CRC Firecracker Fun Run 5k & 1-Mile Sparkler

June 29 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

CRC Firecracker Fun Run 5k & 1-Mile Sparkler
All Sports Productions Ad

Come join CRC for a fun run on Saturday, June 29th at 8am at the back parking lot of the Conway Regional Fitness Center on Salem Road. We have a ~5k route (see link below) we will be doing as a group along the trail behind the fitness center. We are also going to do a 1-Mile Sparkler Run this year, so be sure to bring the entire family for a fun morning.

5k Route: https://www.strava.com/routes/3101551894825041526


1) This is a “fun run.” It is not a timed event. We will, however, have refreshments and awards for those that register for the event on RunSignUp. The first 50 participants to register are guaranteed a finisher’s medal, and the first male and first female “winners” of the 5k will receive a free CRC membership.

Registration is FREE to all Conway Running Club members, so be sure to become a member before registering! (See membership cost and perks below.) 12 and under, regardless of event, are also free. 100% Member discount will be automatically applied at checkout. YOU MUST USE SAME EMAIL TO REGISTER FOR RACE AS USED FOR CLUB MEMBERSHIP.

2) We will have a wave start with the 5k starting at 8am and the 1-mile starting ~5 minutes after. Please arrive early enough to check-in for the event (we will be giving you a wristband to denote which race you are running).

3)This is an OPEN course. The 1-mile course will be on the trail with a turnaround point halfway. We ask that you please try to run on the right side of the trail as to not impede those who are returning to the finish. While the majority of the 5k is along the trail, there is a small portion that goes into a neighborhood. It is your responsibility to obey all traffic laws and be aware of your surroundings. Please run opposing vehicular traffic whenever possible.

4) We will have the portion of the 5k course that goes into the neighborhood marked with some cones so you hopefully will know when to turn. Still, please check out the course map prior to the run if you can!

4) We are anticipating a nice turn out for this event, and we are excited! We hope you can make it and meet other runners/walkers!

5) While we love our four-legged friends, we ask that you abstain from bringing them to this event in case there are runners who are wary of dogs.

6) Strollers will be allowed, but we ask that you start at the back of the pack!
