UNC Veterans Services is hosting the annual Freedom 5k. The run is a 3.1-mile route of obstacle-free running that is open to walkers, runners, ruckers, children, strollers, and 4-legged furry friends! Bring a heavy ruck if you want to show off your strength. There will be one (1) aid station approximately halfway through the course, and there will be beautiful views the whole way!
Please join us for tailgating and the military appreciation football game after! The registration cost benefits the UNC Veterans’ Scholarship fund. Please join us on this fall morning for a fun run/walk/ruck, festivities, and football game. The race will go on no matter what the weather has in store, so please be prepared and dress accordingly!
The course begins at Roudebush Cottage on Central Campus (located between Gray and Crabbe Halls) and concludes at the UNC Bear Pepsi Fan Fest Tailgate Area.
DIRECTIONS TO THE RACE
The start line will be right next to our Veterans Services Center (called Roudebush Cottage), which is in-between Gray Hall and Crabbe Hall on the UNC Campus.
There are parking lots directly behind the starting line. The finish line will also be near some parking, but due to it being game day it will be harder to park there. All parking is free on the weekends on the UNC Campus.
Top six will receive gift cards to Altitude Running.
