Fun Fourth Freedom Run 10K & 2 Mile

Run or walk in honor of our brave military men and women while helping disabled children feel like rock stars during this year's Freedom Run & Walk, part of the Fun Fourth Festival 2010.

The Freedom Run & Walk, a 10K race, the 2-mile fun run and walk, the Tot Trot and Kids ½ K are set for Saturday, June 26, in downtown Greensboro.

A highlight of this year's event is the addition of Miles for Smiles,a group started by local running enthusiast Janelle Robinson that matches runners with special-needs children, so kids can experience participating in a road race. The runners do the actual running – pushing the children in jogging strollers – and the kids will do the smiling.

“It’s great to have “Miles for Smiles” as part of our Freedom Run and Walk”’ says Mebane Ham, Coordinator. “We are looking forward to lots of fun and smiles for all in downtown Greensboro. I encourage community runners to sign up and provide assisted participation for special-needs children – truly, running for fun.”

Anyone interested in participating through Miles for Smiles, please contact Janelle Robinson.

Race Applications are available to download or you can register online.

On the Mark Sports will provide electronic timing finish line services for the 10K Freedom Run only.
