Nisswa Firecracker Run features 5K and 10K runs July 4

Post-race festivities include Slip'N'Slide, crawfish boil, snow party and free beer for ages 21 and older


The Nisswa Firecracker Run will take place at 8 a.m. Sunday, July 4, in downtown Nisswa.

The annual run features 5K and 10K races and is limited to 2,500 runners.

The routes are flat, scenic, safe and made up of paved trails and streets, making this a family event and easy for anyone to participate, the website says.

There’s also a Kidz Free Run for children 10 and under. A parent or guardian must be entered in the 5K or 10K for children to participate.

All runs end at the Nisswa Community Center with an optional Slip'N'Slide finish, crawfish boil, free beers for those age 21 and older, and a red, white and blue snow party.


The Nisswa Firecracker is a beneficiary to Bridges of Hope Minnesota.
