Kiddos don't receive a free Firecracker shirt in the Kidz Run, so we offer a Kidz Pack option! They'll each receive an authentic youth Zorbaz Nisswa Firecracker shirt, bib number, and other free gear from the locals! Participation in Kidz Run not necessary. (These sell out fast, so get them while you can!)


Only 150 available!


*This is not a registration for the run.​


Only $15 



Ok Kids, get ready to show your parents what you're made of! A historically huge and super fun part of the Nisswa Firecracker, this is roughly a 400 yard course at the finish line area.

*Children 10 and under only. Parent/guardian must be entered in 5k or 10k to participate. (Kids do not receive a t-shirt in the kidz run, but you may opt to buy a Kidz Pack above)

FREE - Register at finish line on day of event.
