I met Mr Evans in 1968 when we move to Ada. My dad, Dorsey Jack Reirdon took a job as Ada High Track Coach. I have yrs of wonderful memories of him especially in his later years. I had the priviledge of helping him. He loved God, his family, friends and sports.
When will the new info for this year be posted?
Patti Briggs Teresa Little and I finally got to do our walk. Best weather ever. Enjoyed our early morning time together.
Great race today, everybody!
Anyone have any info on the half marathon route?

I was signing up and at the end of the registration I noticed it’s not stroller friendly, is that correct? I’m only asking because I’ve seen it as a disclaimer on other races but then saw strollers on the course.

The Fireball 🧨🇺🇸 Half Marathon is just 7 days away! This will probably be the hottest race I run this year, but I couldn’t be more excited because races are in person again! I cannot believe how much I’ve fallen in love with running. Seriously, some of best quiet time is spent on the move. God is good! -- Jake Walker

We are loving your Fireball photos uploaded to Enmotive! Keep them coming!

[07/04/20]   It’s been a huge honor to be one of the co directors for this year’s Fireball Classic. I ran this race for the first time 25 years ago today. It wasn’t only my first Fireball, it was my first race period. I was hooked and the bar was set high for what a race should be. It’s rare that I go to any race anywhere with better customer service.
This year was challenging to say the least. We tried to make customer service a priority still despite it being a virtual race.
Thank you so much to all volunteers, sponsors, and participants!
BTW, you can still register till midnight tonight July 4th.

[07/01/20]   Thank you so much for supporting Ada Sunrise Rotary and the Back to School Basics Program by registering for the Fireball Classic Memorial Race! We are excited that our events - especially the 100 Mile Challenge - have become so popular. We are on target to meet our fundraising goals!

Co-Race Director Danny Manuel will be hosting a Packet Pickup Event on Friday, July 3 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. It will be held at Central Oklahoma Family Medical at 1221 Arlington in Ada.

If you signed up to have your packet mailed to you, it will be shipped after Monday. If you cannot attend the event on Friday we will make alternative arrangements to get it to you.

Please contact Co-Race Directors Danny Manuel at 580-320-3215 or Christine Pappas at 580-399-5819 or [email protected] if you have any questions.
