Run for Liberty
5K & 1 Mile Fun Run
Join us for the inaugural Run for Liberty! The Run for Liberty is a USATF Sanctioned 5K in support of “The Friends of Liberty State Park” (“FOLSP”), which is an all-volunteer non-profit 501© (3) grassroots stewardship organization founded in 1988. FOLSP is dedicated to supporting Liberty State Park; an inspiring recreational open space, natural and historic public resource behind Lady Liberty and Ellis Island.
What we are supporting:
Our mission is “to preserve, protect, conserve and promote Liberty State Park”. All proceeds from this race will go toward improving Liberty State Park by funding the park’s gardens, adding to the 900 trees we’ve already funded, supporting additional amenities, volunteer activities, and park programs. We’re currently working on a law to protect LSP after four decades of unpopular and defeated privatization and commercialization plans. So, join us June 15th! Walkers, Runners, and spectators welcome!
The course will start and finish on the south end of the Liberty State Park waterfront. Runners will enjoy inspiring vistas of Lady Liberty, Ellis Island, the Manhattan skyline, and New York harbor!
