Freedom Run 10k & 5k Virtual Edition!

Register NowRace Details
In these unprecedented times, there seem to be more questions than answers. Downtown Greensboro Inc has cancelled the Fun Fourth Festival.  In order to keep the long standing history and heritage of the Fun Fourth Freedom Run we are moving all registered participants into the 2020 Virtual Fun Fourth Freedom Run.

Why should you run the 2020 Fun Fourth Freedom Run virtual?

  • You are supporting local! Downtown Greensboro Incorporated (DGI) is a non-profit  development organization focused on stimulating investment and supporting activity in the center city.
  • Keeping up the history and heritage – Freedom Run 10K is the longest running endurance event in NC!
  • All virtual registrants get a race bib and 2020 event shirt included with registration
  • You will receive coupons & giveaways from local Greensboro businesses
  • The event remains in the Omega Sports Race Series!!

Here’s some important information for you to know:

10 (ten) series points for participation

Option to “double up” and do both the 5k and 10k to score 2 series race finishes and a total of 20 participation points!

Registration will remain open for Virtual Registrations until June 22, allowing us time to get bibs, shirts and schwag to you prior to July 4th.

While you can run anytime you want, anywhere you want, we ask you to rally and run on July 4. Sport your bib, get in your race distance(s) and be sure to take a post race finishers photo!

You do not need to take action of any kind at this time. 

We will send additional communication if you wish to “double up” your participation to both the 5K and 10K.  Information regarding how to post your “official” results and result deadlines.  Additionally, the option to pick up race items or shipping  details will be communicated at a later date.

If you have any questions or wish to defer to the 2021 Freedom Run, please contact

We can’t wait to celebrate Independence Day with you through running this race – even if we have to do it apart!

On behalf of DGI and the Fun Fourth Freedom Run, thank you for your continued support.

The Freedom Run 10K kicks off the Fun Fourth Celebration weekend. Come run in honor and support of Military personnel who protect and defend our freedom. Deck yourself out in a patriotic costume and show off your American spirit!
