Blue Ridge Freedom 5K has now gone virtual.  In an effort to promote social distancing but still keep us active we have made the decision to hold a virtual 5k.  What does that mean?  The race will be done on your time schedule during the holiday weekend.  Our course in downtown Blue Ridge will be marked so you can run the traditional course or you can run anywhere you like as long as it is a 5K.   Race Joy live tracking will be available so friends and family members can track and encourage you along the way.    Results will be submitted at the completion of your run.  All instructions for tracking and results submission will be email. 

Shirts will be mailed to all participants at the completion of the event.  Please make sure your mailing address is correct in your Runsignup account. 

 Our start and finish this year will be located outside of Adventure Gear store located at 342 E Main St, Blue Ridge, GA 30513.  


The event will run from 7/1/2020 until 7/5/2020 at 5:00 p.m.  You can run your 5k on your schedule during this time frame.  Submit your results at the end of your run.  You have the option to run anywhere you like or run our traditional course in downtown Blue Ridge.  An email will be sent out with result uploading instructions.
