That glow you see on the horizon is the Annual Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Club’s Firecracker Run. There are three distances, something for the whole family; a 10K, a 5K and a 1K for the kids. Registration is open. The only thing missing is you! Yep, that’s right, registration for next year’s race is open because the race is always July 4th, and it’s a Saturday in 2020! Since 1985, The Firecracker 10k has been a Santa Cruz Independence Day tradition. Started by the City of Santa Cruz in 1985, the race was taken over by the Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Club in 2004. Race schedule: Kids’ 1K run at 8:00 am, 10K starts at 8:30 am and the 5K starts at 8:40 am. 10K-5K-1K awards commencing at 9:45 – 10:00 am. Aerobics warm-up and Santa Cruz DJ Company will light your fire with warm-up tunes certain to pump you up. Some of this year’s highlights include: Really cool Aptos Fleet Feet long sleeve shirts for top finishers in 10K and 5K! Medals still 3 deep in 5-year age groups! Flat, fast, certified 5K course! Certified 10K course! The Thrill of the Hill remains in the classic town and country 10K course!
