LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The weather Saturday morning made for a great day for a run.

The third annual Firecracker 4-mile/walk run was held at Riverside Park Saturday morning.
The race,  formerly the Chileda Classic, took runners through a 4-mile or 1-mile long course which showcased La Crosse's natural beauty.

The race benefits the Children's Museum of La Crosse and the La Crosse Area Autism Foundation. 
Deb Snow, an event organizer, said the run is a fun family event.

"We really wanted to kind of please everybody and offer the whole family something to do. If mom and dad want to bring the kids or if grandma and grandpa are along or aunts and uncles there's something for everyone. There's running, there's walking there's a real challenge and of course the youth races," Snow said.

About 700 people participated in the event this year
