You’re a Grand Old Flag-Carrying Division

The You're a Grand Old Flag-Carrying Race division is our tribute to that high-flying flag, the emblem of the land we love. Participants who register for this division must follow the following guidelines:

  • Each participant must carry a traditional red, white, and blue American flag for the entirety of the 5K.
  • Each participant must provide his or her own American flag for this event.
  • The American flag to be carried must be a minimum of three (3) feet in height and five (5) feet in length.
  • The American flag must be mounted on a portable flag pole bearing no sharp edges or ends.
  • The American flag must never touch the ground at any point during this event.
  • The American flag and its pole must be carried with control throughout the duration of the event. Participants in the Old Glory division are expected to conduct themselves respectfully and carry the flag and pole in a safe manner, continually aware of the other participants in their vicinity.

Please note that the Old Glory division is its own separate category. Participants do not compete against the regular Firecracker 5K runners but rather have separate awards:
