Description

*****This race is over, but there are still a few medals left. If you missed the race and wish to purchase a medal, email the Director at fjjrunning@gmail.com****

The Freedom Run is a virtual 5k run designed to acknowledge, and dare we say cautiously celebrate, as we begin the gradual re-opening of our businesses, parks, trails, states and countries . It is a unique virtual running event in many ways. Among other things, there will be a scheduled race date and start time (Saturday June 20th at 9am Eastern time USA), a virtual check in and start via Facebook live-stream on race day morning, timekeeping (runners will provide screenshots or pictures of their chosen method of time and distance keeping), and custom engraving on the back of the medal for age group winners. All participants will receive the custom Freedom Run medal, with age group winners receiving the engraving on their medal back. 

******* If you cannot participate on/at the scheduled race date/time during the 2 hour race window, you can absolutely still register. Your medal will still be shipped. But, you won't be eligible for age group awards (engraving on your medal) or to be counted among the "official" times posted after race day.******

All registered runners should join private Facebook Group for access to positive discussions and posts regarding our virtual races, race day live-stream virtual check-in and virtual start (Please note, the Facebook group is being used for other races including the Quarantine Run and Shoe Fanatic Run.

Race Date and start time: Saturday June 20, 2020. Virtual check-in via live-stream in the Facebook group above starts at 8:00am Eastern time USA. Virtual race start via Facebook group above live-stream at 9:00am Eastern time USA. The live-stream will be going while you are running, and we will be waiting for you to complete your 5k during the 2 hour race day window of 9am to 11am Eastern time USA. As noted above, if you cannot participate on/at the scheduled race date/time during the 2 hour race window, you can absolutely still register. Your medal will still be shipped. But, you won't be eligible for age group awards (engraving on your medal) or to be counted among the "official" times posted after race day.

Pricing includes shipping as quoted by our shipper, and the registration link is priced to include shipping costs within the Continental United States or Canada (please be sure to choose the correct registration for your location). Any runners outside the Continental United States or Canada will have an extra shipping charge, and will be contacted by the Race Director with the amount. Please note - Shipping is via USPS. There have been a few rumors in the news about the USPS having some sort of financial issues due to the COVID19 related shutdown. It seems highly unlikely our event's shipping will be affected. BUT, if it is, and changes out of our control must be made to shipping, all runners will be notified via email.

Timekeeping: Race timing will operate on the honor system. Given the unique nature of each runner's situation, we will accept proof of completed 5k on race day via text (to be provided in pre-race emails). For example: Treadmill runners may text a picture of their treadmill console. Or, phone app users may screenshot their completed run on their phone app and text the picture. Or, runners using a watch may snap a pic of their watch-face and text it in. You may run in any way that is safe, legal, and ethical in your area. This may be on a treadmill, trail, track, beach, sidewalk, laps around your house, laps inside your house, etc. It is entirely the runner's choice, and responsibility to maintain social distancing and follow all your own local laws, directives, regulations, etc.

Results will be published in the Facebook Group.
