Freedom Solo Runs
June 25 @ 8:00 am - August 2 @ 8:00 pm CDT
The world is getting back to normal in steps… and this is a step back to normal running events: the Freedom Solo Run!
Another virtual run? Not really. Everyone will run or walk the same physical 5K or 11M course so that everyone is compared on the same distance (Four Freedoms Monument out and back on Greenway – see race map in app), just at whatever date/time is convenient to you. And all the while maintaining social distancing and keeping each other safe.
The 5K goes from Four Freedoms to the big steel bridge near Lamasco Park and back.
The 11-Miler goes from Four Freedoms to the Stringtown boat ramp parking lot and back.
1. Register now. It’s only $5 for the 5K or $10 for the 11-Miler. You can sign up NOW through Friday, July 31st and need to complete your run by Sunday, August 2nd.
2. One you get your confirmation email, take note of your automatically assigned bib number (you’ll need that later).
3. Download the RaceJoy mobile app. This will allow you to have the course map with you and will allow you to record your finish time by GPS and automatically have your result uploaded.
Using the app, your time will be automatically recorded and uploaded. No need to email us. (There is a place to submit your time should something go wrong with your auto timing.)
Since the course can’t be marked like normal, the app will also give you audio cues as to where to turn and will give you audio time checks at each mile.
Can you do it more than once? Yes, but your time will be overwritten by the second time on the same course. And yes, you can register for both the 5K and the 11M to be run at different times.
