Virtual Freedom Classic 5K (Ages 8–Adult)
July 1, 2020 @ 5:00 am - July 5, 2020 @ 9:00 pm
You run the race on your own anytime between July 1-5 anywhere runners/walkers/cyclists like to run/cycle – your neighborhood, local path, the treadmill or even the Freedom Classic 5K course (roads will not be blocked or closed, so please use caution, run on sidewalks and run at your own risk.) Please know that if you do decide to run your virtual race on the Freedom Classic course, it will not be supported with water or volunteers, so come prepared. Remember to practice social distancing and stay 6 feet or more from people while running. After completing the 5K, they are encouraged to post a picture with their time on the dedicated Freedom Classic 5K Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FreedomClassic5K). The first 150 registered runners will receive a race shirt and medal.
Packet Pick-Up: 10 am– 4 pm
Monday, June 29 and Tuesday, June 30 at Mundelein Community Center, 1401 N. Midlothian Road, Mundelein, IL
Beat the Clock Challenge
For those who want a little friendly competition, enter the “Beat the Clock Challenge” by selecting a race pace and projected finish time when you register for the event (for example, a 9:00 minute per mile pace = a 5K race finish time of 27:58). Once you register, join our dedicated Freedom Classic 5K Facebook Page and meet your Virtual Pace Leaders (7 min/mile; 8 min/mile; 9 min/mile; 10 min/mile and 11 min/mile paces). Our Virtual Pace Leaders are experienced runners who have been our Freedom Classic Pacers the last few years. The pace group that has the most runners/walkers to come closest to their selected finish time will receive a ROCK-STAR RUNNER Certificate, bragging rights. Keep track of your time on your watch or tracking device (GPS, Garmin, MapMyRun, Strava, etc.) and post a picture and your time on our dedicated Freedom Classic 5K Facebook page and engage with our Virtual Pace Leaders.
