The 7th Annual Oakdale Chamber of Commerce Firecracker 5K is the perfect way to begin to celebrate the birth of our nation on the 4th of July with a run that benefits our Veterans. Hosted by Dowling College, the net proceeds benefit a student Veteran at Dowling. Celebrate with us by running (or walking) a fast, flat but scenic 5K through the Idle Hour neighborhood of Oakdale, over its canals and through the interesting Artist Colony. Cash prizes to the overall top three male/female winners.
You don't have to join the Island Running Club to participate in our group runs and races, but it helps us in our efforts to provide these services. Joining the club provides the funds we need to pay our membership to the Road Runners Club of America, it pays for the insurance we have to carry to provide these services and it provides the seed money we need to manage new events.
