Run for freedom at the fourth annual Freedom 5k on September 16, 2017, at President Lincoln’s Cottage, where Abraham Lincoln contemplated freedom, justice, and equality while in residence and issued the Emancipation Proclamation, his nation-changing executive order.

Traverse a pastoral landscape that winds past ponds, fields, historic buildings, and vistas on this breath-taking course. The run culminates on the foot of the lawn at President Lincoln’s Cottage, where a ceremony will take place. The annual Freedom 5K is an exclusive opportunity for members of the public to race through the 250-acre grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home – home to hundreds of veterans– in Northwest Washington, DC. Proceeds and donations from the run support the mission of President Lincoln’s Cottage, a private non-profit organization. The race starts at 9 am. 

A pre-race yoga session will begin at 8:15 am. 

Registration fee: $35 until online registration closes on September 14 at 8:00 pm, then will be $40 through race day.

Tot Dash: 100-yard Tot Dash for FREE following the 5k race. Register the morning of the race. 

Packet pickup: Packet Pickup will be held on Friday, September 15, from 4:30-7:30 pm at President Lincoln’s Cottage and Saturday, September 16 starting at 7:30 am.
