This event is put on by the Molalla Running Club, a non-profit organization. The Freedom 5K raises money for veterans by donating part of the proceeds to the local VFW. Another portion of the proceeds goes to the local Chamber of Commerce, which puts on the annual 4th of July parade and helps support local businesses.
This race is chip-timed and awards will be given to top finishers and age group winners. There will also be door prizes available to win. Be sure to register soon to ensure you get a race t-shirt and beat the 700 person cap. Both runners and walkers are welcome, but be aware that the race course officially closes in one hour. Participants may still finish the race after that time, as long as they are in front of the parade, but they will not receive an official time. Since the 4th is a big day in Molalla, it is recommended that you give yourself extra time to get to the race, as traffic will be heavy.
Bring your friends and family and enjoy this festive event that includes a little bit of everything for your 4th!
