Individuals of all ages and abilities are encouraged to “go the (social) distance” between June 27 and July 4 by participating in the virtual Firecracker 4-mile run/walk. Although the format is different this year, without a group run on a specific date, this event will still promote active outdoor fun with the opportunity to support the Children’s Museum of La Crosse and the La Crosse Area Autism Foundation.


The registration fee is $20 (+$2.50 credit card processing fee) per person or $60 (+ processing fee) for 3 or more people registering together. Each paid participant who runs or walks 4 miles and reports their time between June 27 and July 4 will receive a link to a printable, personalized finisher certificate and is eligible to win a medal (real, not virtual). The top three male & female finishers in the following age categories will receive medals: 0-12, 13 – 18, 19 –24, 25-29, 30-34. 35–39, 40-44, 45–49, 50–54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+. The overall top finisher for both male and female will also receive an overall medal.


Children under age 12 are invited to register for the Kids’ Superhero Races at no charge! 


Each paid participant will also receive a digital link for a printable bib number, as well as the gratitude of the staff and customers of both beneficiary organizations.
