A one-mile, gravity fed, fun event for all ages & abilities!
The Firecracker Mile is a long standing Truckee tradition so you can get in a bit of cardio burst before chilling out for the parade and a sun filled day of barbecues, beer, and beach play while waiting for the grand finale – the fireworks.
This run is great for families, young kids, high school kids, college kids, active grandparents, friendly dogs on leashes and competitive types who want to see how fast they can go!
The run is one mile downhill along Donner Pass Road from US Bank to the Train Station. Runners are encouraged to wear festive attire and are cheered on by the thousands of parade spectators.
Register online or come into Tahoe Mountain Sports and register in person.
