Race Preview: 2019 Grants Pass Freedom Run – 5k Run/Walk

Check out the Rogue River by running a fun 5k on May 25th in Grants Pass! The 2019 Grants Pass Freedom Run will have a “red, white, & blue” theme this year and it should be a great day to celebrate your strength!!

The Boatnik Parade will be occurring the same day as this 5k running and walking event, and it would be a perfect event to bring your family to explore. Park somewhere near the Bethany Presbyterian Church (741 NW 4th Street) or around 3rd thru 5th Street. The start will occur at 9:30 just before the parade on 6th & C Street. You’ll finish at the Reinhart Volunteer Park (All Sports Park) at the DCS shelter. There will be shuttle buses taking runners back to the church parking lot after you’re done, starting at 10:15AM and going until everyone has gotten back. Check out the route of the course here.

The event will be chip timed and sponsored by the GPHS Athletic Booster Club, so show your support! There will be awards to the top 3 in each gender as well as to the top 3 overall youth. Ribbons will be presented to age group winners. Check out your finish results on iPads made available to you after the race.

Restrooms and water will be at the start and finish line. Gatorade and fruit will be available to you at the finish line as well.
