Firecracker 5000 Course

If   you   have   ran   the   Firecracker   5000   race   in   the   past   few   years   you   will   notice   a   change   in   the   course this   year.   Instead   of   starting   at   the   fountain   we   will   start   and   finish   the   race   in   the   north   parking   lot (Belk’s   entrance).   This   change   was   brought   on   to   accommodate   the   large   number   of   runners   coming through.   This   should   also   make   it   easier   to   make   room   for   our   growing   number   of   10k   runners   to   come through for their second loop without running into a crowd.
