Run for freedom at the fifth annual Freedom 5K at President Lincoln’s Cottage on Saturday, September 22nd. The race is on the anniversary of the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.
Traverse a pastoral landscape that winds past ponds, fields, historic buildings, and vistas on this breath-taking course. The run culminates on the foot of the lawn at President Lincoln’s Cottage, where a ceremony will take place. The annual Freedom 5K is an exclusive opportunity for members of the public to race through the 250-acre grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home – home to hundreds of veterans– in Northwest Washington, DC. These grounds are closed to the public every day of the year besides our Freedom 5K! Proceeds and donations from the run support the mission of President Lincoln’s Cottage, a private non-profit organization. All 5k participants will receive a commemorative race t-shirt and awards will be given to the overall top 3 male and female finishers.
