2020 marks the 10th Anniversary of The Downs Freedom 5K and we can't wait to celebrate with YOU!!  This race provides an AWESOME local small town race experience, bringing the community together for a fun filled day of running (or walking)! Whether you’re looking for a new PR (this course is one of the FLATTEST around!) or you’re looking for a family friendly experience, this 5K is for YOU! We have a ton of new things planned for this year – you DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS 5K!!!  We also have a 1 mi walk and a FREE Kids Fun Run! Register today! 

**** As your race directors, we are committed to the health and safety of our runners, walkers, volunteers and spectators.  In the event we have limitations with state guidelines, we have awesome contingency plans for this event! From wave starting to virtual racing, we have options with It’s Race Time to make sure we provide the best experience possible. Race shirts, reporting individual race times, and an awards ceremony are all part of our contingency plans. We appreciate your support as we do our best to move forward during these uncertain times.  - Mel Pilchard & Holly-Rae Van Hoof
