For safety reasons, runners under age 10 years of age will not be permitted to be on the race course, either as a participant or in a stroller/baby jogger.
Again this year, the event will be chip-timed by Tri-Performance, LLC (Brian Crow). On race day, participants will be required to pick up a timing chip at least 1/2 hour prior to the start of the race. The timing chip is attached using an ankle strap. Failure to wear a timing chip during the event will prevent the participant from being timed. At the finish line, all timing chips and ankle straps must be returned to Tri-Performance, LLC or the participant will be charged $20.00.
Age groups are 10-14; 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60+
The first 200 runners will receive a FREE Freedom 5K shirt.
Pastor Carlton and his staff at the Culpeper Baptist Church will host this 5K event. Bathrooms will be available inside the church. Parking is available at the lower parking lot on S. West Street.
Would you like to support the Freedom 5K? We welcome monetary donations and promotional items to be included in the participant's goody bags. For more information contact Marlys Houston at 540-829-8260 or email at mhouston@culpeperva.gov.

*********FOR THE 3rd YEAR - A FUN RUN FOR KIDS***********

The Culpeper Baptist Church is again sponsoring a FUN RUN for young children, babies and toddlers (but parents must run with them). This will be a small race, not the full 5K course. It will begin directly after the regular 5K race at the back of the upper church parking lot and end at the same location.


If your children are interested, registration for the race will be forthcoming. The cost of the run is $5.00 to cover the price of the t-shirt.
