While the final result sheet said that Peter McNiff ran away with the title at the 2010 Firecracker 5K, it was actually Ryan McNiff whos earned the title.
McNiff inadvertently grabbed his dad’s bib number at the start of the race, jumbling up the final standings. Nevertheless, McNiff and Heather Wood both successfully defended their 2009 titles at this year’s run.
The Firecracker 5K, which is sponsored by the Family YMCA of Los Alamos, was run on July 4. In all, 242 participants entered in this year’s race, a record turnout.
