As part of the Clawson 4th of July Celebration, the Clawson 4th of July Committee is proud to host 3 races for the community.
The Clawson Freedom Run 5k
and 1 mile-fun run
are held on the last Sunday evening in June.
The 5k starts just outside of Clawson City Park, and winds through the neighborhood before finishing inside the park.
The 1-mile fun run is run entirely on the woodchipped path inside the park.
The Firecracker Mile is run on the 4th of July and precedes the parade down 14 Mile Road.
At least $1000 in prizes are awarded to Firecracker mile racers every year (that the race is held).
Follow the links at the left to learn more and register.
The races are always in need of volunteers (registration workers, road guards and split timers).
If you are interested in helping out email us at:
Our registration fees are extremely low. The races are primarily a community event and not a fundraiser.
