The 2019 Yorktown Freedom Run will again be an 8K race on the Yorktown Battlefield. There will also be a 5K fun run once again! Registration and awards were at York High School on Memorial Day, May 27, 2019. The race flier is available by clicking here. You may sign up using the filer or through the Run Sign Up website. The location is a very nice course mostly using the Battlefield Tour Road. You can see a map of the 2019 8K course at: Click here to see 8K map or you can see a map of the 2019 5K fun run course at: Click here to see 5K map.
All runners will get a T-shirt; however, only those who register with a postmark by May 10th will be assured of getting the exact size they want.
There will be bottled water and plenty of refreshments after the race. Medals are given to runners in 26 categories and cash awards are given to the top three male and female runners in the Open and Master's categories.
The race commemorates Memorial Day and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom. The Freedom Run is operated by the Yorktown Rotary Club, and all proceeds go to the Yorktown Rotary Foundation to provide scholarships at local high schools and give support to a wide range of youth and community services as shown on the Community Service page.
About 150 runners entered the 2018 Memorial Day race -- about 30 for the 5K fun run and the rest for the 8K. Roger Hopper of Norfolk VA won the event with a time of 27:35. Jennifer Anderson of Poquoson VA was the first woman with a time 34:48. Runners were as young as 8 years and as old as 74.
Complete results for the 8K were generated by the Peninsula Track Club and are provided HERE. Unofficial 5K results are provided HERE.
