A little bit of a new feel to an awesome event in 2017. Fire on the Track will be a 100% charity event, raising money for local non-profit organizations this year. Each non-profit will be picked by elite athletes running in the final heats. The event will also be an evening race midweek so that more people can attend to race, and cheer, without missing other awesome weekend races!
A 5K on the track is an fantastic opportunity to hit a PR for both the elites and novices alike. Come on out and test your fitness by racing in a unique environment. The heats will be set up in ascending order of projected speed. Each athlete will receive 400 meter splits with their finisher results so they can see how their pacing went throughout the race.
The championship heat will be a charity race with each runner picking a charity they will represent! Runners in the championship heat will raise money and then all of the money will be pooled and the athletes will race for it in the Championship Heat! All charities will be given a percentage of money raised!
