Firecracker 5K Results

Firecracker 5km-Sudbury 2007

The annual Firecracker 5km had a nice showing of TNOR athletes. Thanks to long-time organizers, TNOR alumni Ron Poirier and Malcolm Steven, and Vince Perdue. After founding the race 20 years ago, Ron is passing the organizational duties on to others. Malcolm who drove from Waterloo every year to assist, and Vince, who has been helping organize for the 13 years the race has been in Lively, are also retiring and will finally get a July 1st weekend off.

Every year, the Firecracker has donated money to Track North and also to their main charity, the Breast Cancer Association.

Many, many Track North athletes have raced in the Firecracker over the years (and taken home shoes and other super prizes) including a number of our OFSAA and National medalists. I've always thought it was one of the best events on the road racing circuit - well organized, great course, super prizes, friendly and fun!

Thanks Ron, Malcolm and Vince!!
