DeGray Lake Resort State Park's Freedom 5K Fun Run

July 04, 2018

Celebrate our sweet land of liberty and Arkansas State Parks with friends and family at DeGray Lake Resort State Park’s fourth annual Freedom 5K Fun Run. Join us at the starting line in your most patriotic outfit and run, walk or march the 3.1 mile course. Runners and walkers alike are sure to enjoy scenic lake views and the shade of mature pine trees along our unique, mixed surface course, which has been modified to include more trail time this year (1.6 miles pavement, 1.5 mile single track). All ages and abilities are welcome.

Don’t miss your chance to win a two night stay at any one of five Arkansas State Parks Lodges, by dressing in your best Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty inspired attire. Whether or not you choose to participate in the post-race costume contest, runners are encouraged to deck themselves in red white and blue!
