Freedom 5k Banner

This year UNC Veterans Services is hosting the annual Freedom 5k on November 12, 2022. 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. The event will begin promptly at 0900, so please arrive by 0845. There will be one (1) aid station approximately halfway through the course, and there will be beautiful views the whole way! 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. 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!
