The 35th Annual Hilton Head Firecracker 5K will be held on Saturday, July 4th at 8:00am from Jarvis Creek Park on Hilton Head Island. The Hilton Head Firecracker Run is the largest and oldest road race in Beaufort County and one of the top ten races in the state of South Carolina. Over 1,700 runners and walkers from across the United States annually participate in this fun, healthy, family event.

The festive post-race celebration features a Children’s Fun Run, music, fresh fruit, ice cold refreshments and more!

The Town of Hilton Head Island has suspended all special events through July 6th, which unfortunately means we will have to cancel the 2020 Hilton Head Firecracker 5K. This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our running community, from all of our participants to those who put on the events.

The entire country is still being impacted by this pandemic, but we want to provide the best experience we can under these difficult circumstances, so we’ve automatically transferred your registration to the July 4, 2021 event. No action is required on your end.

Unfortunately, we can’t refund our participants because we’ve already spent most of the money on everything we needed to produce it, from race swag to permits and planning. What little that remains is being used to keep the lights on for as long as we can during this difficult time.

For more information, visit our website. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to [email protected]. We anticipate a high email volume, so response times may be delayed, but we’ll reply as soon as possible.

On behalf of the Loco Races team, we thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times.
