Run for freedom at the fifth annual Freedom 5K on September 22, 2018, at President Lincoln’s Cottage, on the anniversary of the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.

Traverse a pastoral landscape that winds past ponds, fields, historic buildings, and vistas on this breath-taking course. The run culminates on the foot of the lawn at President Lincoln’s Cottage, where a ceremony will take place. All 5K participants will receive commemorative race swag and awards will be given to the overall top 3 male and female finishers.

This is a unique opportunity for runners to see the 250-acres of the Old Soldiers’ Home grounds, typically closed to the public. All proceeds go towards President Lincoln’s Cottage,a nonprofit and only National Monument to not receive federal funding.
