The Freedom 5K run hosted by the Friends of Independence National Historical Park is a fun, timed race through the streets of Philadelphia in Old City and along the pathways of Independence National Historical Park. The 2014 5K charity run supports the Friends of Independence and our Law Enforcement Bicycle Patrol Fund.
The Bicycle Fund will go towards the purchasing and maintenance of bicycles for our Law Enforcement Rangers as they pedal around our 54 acre park keeping locals and visitors safe. Our goal is to make sure that each of our rangers has a bike that fits them properly and has all the necessary safety equipment.
The Freedom 5k Run in Philadelphia will be more than just a run… it will change history. Well maybe not change it... but it could alter our way of thinking for the day. On June 29th, Loyalist and Patriots will meet on the grounds of Independence National Historical Park and “run it out” for Independence. Will the Loyalist win and claim victory for Great Britain or will the Patriots rally again and fight their way to freedom? Only our runners can decide and you must choose which side to fight for in this battle for independence.
