2024 marks the 5th annual Blazing 5k. The last three years historic races welcomed elites and runners of all types. The 5k course starts on the back loop in Water Works Park and shoots out the gun going clockwise on the flat and fast loop. At the end of the loop the racers are greeted by a prize for the first person to cross the mat. From there it's another flat and fast main loop going clockwise. This area offers plenty of space for spectators and the field can be seen for almost the entirety of this loop. It finishes on the screaming fast and long straightaway to the finish.
In 2023 we introduced the mile race!
Full 2024 details to be released as we get closer.
The 5th edition of the event date is now taking place on October 6th, 2024.
