Mission 5K: Run Free - July 14, 2012 - Leesylvania State ParkFreedom Fellowship Church's
4th Annual 5K Fundraiser

Freedom Fellowship Church is hosting our 4th annual 5K fundraiser at Leesylvania State Park on Saturday, July 12, 2014. Join us in changing lives in our community and in our world for the better. Again this year, we focus our efforts in three specific areas: partnering with Care Net Pregnancy Resource Centers, supporting a missionary family serving in the Far East, and providing scholarships for local college students.

All race expenses have been underwritten by the generous donation of a corporate sponsor. 100% of all monies collected this year through the Mission 5K will go directly to the above recipients. All participants have the choice of earmarking their registration fee and/or donation to a particular recipient or multiple recipients.

The main event will be a 5K race through Leesylvania State Park, along Potomac Trail and the lower Lee's Woods Trail. There will also be a 1K kids' Fun Run, as well as activities for kids. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers and random participants. Early registration is $35 per adult, $15 per student. In addition to race registration fee, there will be a $5 park entrance fee on the morning of the race.   

What's New This Year? 


The 5K course has been refined again. This year, it will be a straight "out and back" course on a road surface, wide enough for a park vehicle.

The first mile will be run on the Potomac Trail. Participants will pass through the marina parking lot, and be visible to spectators in the activity field as they run adjacent to the Potomac River as in previous years. The second mile will be run on the lower Lee's Woods Trail ranger access road. The final mile will be run on the Potomac Trail and marina parking lot as runners retrace their steps.

Leesylvania Driving Map Park opens at 6am. There is a $5 weekend entrance fee. The speed limit is 25mph inside the park. It will take you 3 to 5 minutes to drive from the gate to the parking lot.
