The Liberty 5K is a chip timed run on a certified course that takes runners through Nostalgic Downtown Morris and area parks and neighborhoods. The route is completely paved, primarily flat, with slight hills.
The Liberty 5k not only supports and honors local military personnel, but involves them in the event. But military involvement is just one of the keys to the success of this event. The Liberty 5K boasts a pre-race flyover, patriotic kids run, a master’s division, special awards for military personnel, cash awards and great give aways for all participants. Additionally, cash awards are given to the running clubs with the most participants – $750 for 1st place, $500 for 2nd place, and $300 for 3rd place.
The cost is $25.00 for pre-registered participants (by June 23) and $35.00 for those who register the day of the race. Registration for those 14 and under is reduced to $18.00 for those preregistered.
