    Welcome to the 42nd running of the Firecracker Four. This has been a tradition for many family and friends to start the holiday with a 4-mile run through the neighborhoods of Hales Corners. The race starts and finishes at Hales Corners Park.  There is great crowd support before, during and after the race.  Come join over 1,200 of your family, friends and neighbors for the after-race celebration.  We will have fruit, cookies, chocolate milk, water, freeze pops and beer.
