About This Activity

The Firecracker 4 Miler is Fayetteville Running Club's premier event to support our mission "to promote running as part of a healthy lifestyle in our community". This four mile course winds through the beautiful and historic parks and museums of downtown Fayetteville, hightlighting what our city has to offer both visitors and locals alike.  The course starts and finishes on the streets of Fayetteville at the intersection of Walter & Hillsboro Streets which is located between the N.C. State Veterans Park and the Airborne & Special Operations Museum. 

Keeping Fayetteville Green:

FRC is going green for the Firecracker 4 Miler! Our promotion will be online with a minimal amount of printed materials used. We will have virtual race bags to minimize goody bag waste. We encourage all participants to carpool or ride your bike to the race. And don’t forget your water bottle, there will be water coolers instead of individual plastic bottles at the end of the race.


Crowd-friendly dogs are welcomed at the Firecracker 4 Miler. Dogs must be vaccinated and leashed. Owners are expected to provide waste pickup. Unruly dogs and their owners will be asked to leave the course and forfeit registration. Please make sure your dog is well hydrated. Dog water bowls will be provided at the water stations.


The course includes several low steps. Course volunteers will be stationed at the steps to assistant runners with strollers.

This event is rain or shine, unless the weather is deemed unsafe by the race directors. All registrations are non-refundable.
