It’s been a huge honor to be one of the co directors for this year’s Fireball Classic. I ran this race for the first time 25 years ago today. It wasn’t only my first Fireball, it was my first race period. I was hooked and the bar was set high for what a race should be. It’s rare that I go to any race anywhere with better customer service.
This year was challenging to say the least. We tried to make customer service a priority still despite it being a virtual race.
Thank you so much to all volunteers, sponsors, and participants!
BTW, you can still register till midnight tonight July 4th.

I was signing up and at the end of the registration I noticed it’s not stroller friendly, is that correct? I’m only asking because I’ve seen it as a disclaimer on other races but then saw strollers on the course.
