Ready, set … Firecracker primed for Fourth of July

Published Sunday July 3

The 31st annual Santa Cruz Firecracker 10k takes place Mon and Los Altos’ Philip Pompei won’t be defending the titles he won each of the past 2 years.

That means bragging rights are up for grabs to the first person who crosses the finish line at Harvey West Park.

“It’s a tough course,” race director Jefferson Kirk said.

One that Pompei had a knack for dominating. Not only did he win the 10-kilometer event 2 years in a row — including last year’s in 33 mins. 46 seconds — but he also finished first in 3 of the last 4 years.

Pompei this year was not able to fit the 4th of Jul event into his racing schedule.

Soars stated coming down the hill is no easy task, either.
