There’s something for everyone at the Red, White & Boom!, including a family-friendly morning of races and post-race grill and picnic to celebrate the Fourth of July. All three looped courses start and end next to the Mississippi River in Minneapolis with a bold final mile crossing the iconic, American-flag lined Stone Arch Bridge.
The 1776 Society: Running the Boom since 2010!
The 1776 Society is an exclusive group of runners recognized for its consistency and persistence in having finished the Red, White & Boom! Half Marathon, Relay, or 5K race all nine years of the event's existence (2010 through 2018). Only 102 members remain! These runners can be identified by a special sticker on the corner of their race bibs and especially bright smiles at the finish line!
