The Greater Burlington CVB is honored that Greater Burlington has been selected as one of eight destinations to host FIREBALL RUN: Big Country, the show’s 11th season on September 26, 2017!
Fireball Run is a legendary 8-day, 2,000 mile life-sized trivia pursuit road rally competition, filmed in real-time. Approximately 50 teams, consisting of major players across the country, will battle it out while taking the road less traveled to explore under-discovered places and obscure historic artifacts. All while aiding in America’s largest active recovery effort for missing kids.

- Shane McCampbell, Burlington Mayor
- “When I heard how participating in FBR would give me the opportunity to showcase this city I love, I was immediately excited. When I later learned that the catalyst of FBR is to bring much needed attention to missing children in this country, well that put it completely over the top. I’m all in!”
