Celebrate & Unite
Join us for our 11th Annual Folsom Firecracker. It is a great way to kick off Independence Day and we’re thrilled to bring this event back after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
The event will benefit Shriners Children’s Northern California, located here in Sacramento County off Hwy. 50 adjacent to the UC Davis Med Center. Shriners Children’s mission statement is to provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.
Registration includes a race t-shirt, chip timing, eligibility for age group awards, and (NEW for 2022!) a sparkly red-white-and-blue finisher’s medal. A $5 discount is offered for youth participants ages 1 to 12 years. Early entry is offered for just $30 through May 31. We encourage you to register early!
5K, 10K and a new 2 Mile Course.
Three new courses for 2022. The 2 Mile is perfect for families, younger participants, and those with strollers or well-behaved dogs.
All courses start and finish on Parkshore Drive and travel along the tree-lined Jedidiah Smith Bike trail and offer views of the pristine blue waters of the American River.
Note: course is 95% paved, however there are some brief portions of the route on dirt.
