Fireball Run

 

Fireball Run Begins in Longmont on September 21

 

July 8, 2013 - Longmont, Colorado has been selected as the Official Green Flag city for the 2013 Fireball Run Adventurally and its Race to Recover America’s Missing Children.

Fireball Run is an emotional, eight day, 2500 mile, life-sized trivia game where America serves as the game board. Forty driving teams will participate in the event (including a Longmont team). At each of the eight destinations on their way to the finale in Riverside, California, the teams will solve clues and complete tasks based on each host city.

Each team is assigned a missing child from their hometown region and they will distribute posters and bring awareness to each child’s case along the route. To date, Fireball Run has aided in the recovery of 32 missing children.

Fireball Run will be streamed live to a world audience and filmed as part of an online TV series. The riveting, live-event opening for the series will take place on September 21 at Longmont’s Roosevelt Park, in conjunction with Longmont’s Oktoberfest celebration. The weekend full of exciting events culminates with a parade of all of the teams and green flag start on September 22.
