Join Hundreds of Runners Tackle the Hills of Lago Vista

Firecracker 5K & Fun Run

This patriotic holiday, held on Saturday, July 5th, 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 holiday festivities, held this year on Saturday, July 5th, in Lago Vista. The run is followed by a parade in which racers are invited to join in, walk along and show off your T- shirts. Bring along your swim suit and enjoy the cool waters of  beautiful Lake Travis. Music, food, beverages and craft vendors will be on hand at 5:00 P.M., and do stay for the patriotic fireworks show shot off over the water. Come celebrate with us in our welcoming lake community.
