Description


The 5K is a challenging, all-terrain, cross country inspired race that is run through wooded trails and grassy areas on and around the Malvern Memorial Grounds.

Prizes will be awarded to the Top Male and Female, Top Military Personnel and Veteran, and age group winners.

The Run for Freedom also features a 1 Mile Run/Walk and a Kids' fun run. 

Our beneficiary is a medically discharged Marine who lives in Phoenixville.  His story is a reminder that there are veterans who come home and struggle, maybe never getting that extra help or support that they need.  I will not mention his name because even after 7 years of struggling through physical pain, nightmares, anxiety and too many hours trying to get the benefits he needs and deserves, he still didn't want to ask for help.  The idea of remaining anonymous was a great comfort to him.
