Welcome to the Online Home of The Freedom Run 5k!
What started out as a dream and a desire to help the Quad Cities area's Veteran and active duty Military and their families became a reality for Race director Joe Moreno in 2013. The first race was held on August 8th, 2013 and shocked the running community with a record breaking first year's attendance, both in runners and spectators.
In 2014, the 2nd Annual event on August 7th nearly doubled in size, both in registered runners and the scope of the event.
It's 2015, and Joe and his Squadron of Committee members are already in the briefing room, laying down the strategy for what promises to be another groundbreaking event.
Come out and give something back to your Military and their families - They've all given so much to us. You don't have to run. You can watch, you can cheer, you can sponsor and you can volunteer! However you decide to participate, you're going to have fun!
It's not just a Race. It's an Event. It's not just a good time, it's a Good Cause. It's not just helping... It's American!
