Belmont Firecracker 5K Walk & Run

Start your 4th of July off right! Meet at Stowe Park in Belmont the morning of Monday, July 4th at 8:30 am for a casual "Fireworks 5K" to benefit our local BCO! 

Much like the Thanksgiving run that is held to benefit the organization, there is no registration, no fees, no awards... Just bring a monetary donation of ANY amount - 100% to go to BCO - and join us to run/walk. Roads will remain open, but traffic should be light and the course is the familiar Girls on the Run route (& there will be turn signs for those less familiar!). 

We'll have a few raffle prizes, some finish line water and treats and FINISHER MEDALS for all kids 12&under! Walkers, runners, speedies and pokies! - young and old - all are welcome! Strollers welcome! Pets welcome!  Beautiful National Anthem, kids tossing 'pop firecrackers' and a fun confetti cannon start!!  Please share, share, share and help us spread the word! Let's enjoy a morning of fitness & fellowship while supporting an awesome organization right here in our own community!
