Emporia Freedom Fest is a series of outdoor events bringing together people of all ages to enjoy the outdoors, exercise, and honor all Veterans and their families and support the beautiful All Veterans Memorial and Park.
We are back! All events are back and better than ever before. We are very excited to welcome back the Warrior Spur Challenge (formerly Spur Ride) as well as our EANGKS 12 Miler Ruck March! Individuals can select either a virtual or a traditional in-person option for the LCSB 5K / 10K and the SGT Timmerman / GEN Eisenhower Freedom Rides. The EANGKS 12-mile Ruck march is back and both rounds of the Dynamic Discs Freedom Fest Open will be played at Soden’s Grove that day. Warrior Spur Challenge is on-site and day of only. New this year is the Murph Challenge for all ability levels (team categories as well...)
The Run, Ride, Open, Murph Challenge, Spur Challenge all have great awards for top finishers to including gift certificates sponsored by Lyon County State Bank and hand-crafted trophies created by the Welding Department at Flint Hills Technical College. Murph Challenge competitors compete for the custom engraved K-BAR style Knives and Spur Challengers push hard to win the silver, gold spur or leather tabs on their way to finally earning a CAV Stetson.
There will be limited day of registration this year. Please register online or contact the Emporia Main Street office (620) 340-6430.
