This Fourth of July, why run in the city when you can run in beautiful, scenic Lago Vista on the north shore of Lake Travis? The 5K course isn’t your typical race; it features beautiful Texas Hill Country scenery and lake views. There are slight hills, as well as downhill portions. Come experience the running community of Lago Vista, an excellent training ground. This race will be chip timed and all pre-registrants receive a T-Shirt. This event also includes a 1 mile fun walk.
Come for the race, but stay for the fun. The Firecracker 5k is just the beginning of the 4th of July festivities in Lago Vista. The run is followed by a parade in which racers are invited to join in, walk along and show off your shirts. Events continue throughout the day and include music, food & beverages, vendors, swimming in beautiful Lake Travis and culminate in a spectacular fireworks show over the water. Come spend a day in a welcoming lake community.
