July 4th, Mingus Park, Coos Bay-Cancelled 2020

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we are cancelling the 2020 Mayor’s Firecracker Run

We believe this is the most responsible course of action. We are saddened by the circumstances that are causing us not to be hosting these events. We believe it is our role to keep our runners and their families healthy by decreasing exposure risk.  We hope you understand.  We hope to see you all in 2021.

Run Strong Stay Safe and Be Healthy.
