Race History

The Brentwood Firecracker 5K was the dream of the late Mayor Jim Joyce and Jim Rohm. Each year, the race donates sizeable contributions to the 4th of July Committee and supports other charities. When Mayor Ken Lockhart came to the “aboard” with the race directors Maureen Cunningham and Kira Kellner, they continued to provide a first class event that goes to a great cause. To honor the years of service of Maureen Cunningham and former Mayor Ken Lockhart provided for the community, this year’s event will be dedicated to them.
