Flying Tiger Brewery is hosting the 2nd Annual Firecracker 5k through historic downtown Monroe on Saturday July 2rd! This Fundraiser 5K Fun Run will begin at 8am and take you by several new local establishments as well as historic sites as you wind through downtown. Although this is a Fun Run it will include chip timed bibs, finisher medals, and plaques for overall male and female in each category.  The cost is only $25 and participants who sign up by midnight Tuesday June 28th will be guaranteed to receive their event t-shirt and finishing medal that day (Don't worry we order lottos extra medals & t-shirts in all sizes for you last minute runner/walkers! However, worst case scenario you may have to return next week to pick up). 12 and under are free to participate, but must be accompanied by an adult (however, they will not receive t-shirt, bib, & medal unless they have a paid full registration). All proceeds will benefit one of our area's hidden treasures, the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum!  Joining us that morning will be Cory Bahr's Food Truck serving up Standard Coffee and pastries on site! Immediately following the run Flying Tiger will be hosting a free after party featuring live music and a great food truck. That evening will be the West Monroe / Monroe Firework show will be at 9pm and the show is clearly visible from Flying Tiger Brewery. We could not pull this off without our generous sponsor, Creed & Creed - your local injury attorneys! We also want to thank our friends at McDuffie Timing and Fleet Feet Monroe for supporting and assisting with the event! So grab your running shoes and a friend and begin the July 4th weekend off on the right foot!
