START TRAINING NOW…
We would like to encourage everyone to participate in this event! Of course, the serious runner is welcome. There will be medals and trophies, by all means. But these races are about more than just winning. We would like even the non-athlete to come out and walk. Remember, a 5k is not 5 miles. It’s actually just over 3 miles. Walking at a comfortable, but brisk pace, you can easily complete it in 45 minutes. And one mile can be walked (for most people) in as little as 15 minutes. Come out and have fun with your family and friends. Talk. Sing. Laugh. Encourage each other. Push the babies in the stroller. Hold your daughter’s hand. It’s what the good stuff of life is made of!
There are ways you can get involved even if you don’t want to roam the streets of Crowley on a 3 mile adventure. Check them out right here:
WORK A WATER TABLE
Runners get thirsty along the way. Be there to serve water at one of the two water stations along the 5K course.
Like kitchen work? Come help us wash fruit and organize/supervise the refreshments for after the race.
SERVE THE REGISTRATION TABLE
Got great organizational skills? We could use your help with registration the day of the race. It may get a little hectic.
BE A COURSE MONITOR
Calling all cheerleaders! You can sit in your chair along the race course and hold an arrow showing the runners their next turn as you cheer them on.
ASSIST THE TIMING COMPANY
Got a good eye? A couple of sharp tacks are needed to help the timing agents make sure the prizes get awarded to the right people.
Click. Click. Click. Click…. We need photos to promote for next year.
SET UP TABLES
Whoa! Your muscles sure do come in handy! Registration tables, water tables, refreshment tables, etc. You get the idea.
STUFF GOODY BAGS
If you like assembly lines, this job’s for you! Usually this happens a couple nights before the race.
There is normally a little bit of clean up to do after any event. Luckily, this one doesn’t make much mess.
SPREAD THE WORD
You may know lots of people. People who want to run. People who want to help. People who want to change lives! You may have a business where you can place a poster or some registration forms. Would you mind getting the word out for us? The more participation we have from the public, the more lives we can change!!
WAYS TO GIVE:
Would you prayerfully consider sponsoring this race with a donation? Your gift would mean so much. The Bible teaches us that whoever sows generously will reap generously. We are firm believers in the principles of the Bible, and we have seen God’s faithfulness over and over to those who choose to give to him. The old saying is still true, “You can’t out-give God.” Aside from the eternal rewards, the money you generously give is 100% tax deductible.

2. You can mail a check to us. Make your check payable to The Way Training Center and please put Freedom Run 5k Donation in the memo. We will mail a receipt to you. Our address is 809 E. Northern Ave., Crowley, LA 70526
3. You may own a business, and if so you can help by donating goods or services for the registrant bags we give each participant in the 5k. Maybe you could offer a free sample of a particular item or even a one time discount. This will give you exposure and get others into your establishment, plus it blesses those who participate in the 5k with a little something extra. Or perhaps you could offer a door prize to be given just before the awards ceremony. If you can help in this way, fill out the Donation Form and submit to let us know. Thanks!
