18th Annual 5K, One-Mile Fun Run and Kids Races
Saturday, August 8, 2019 at 8 a.m. (5K start at 8:15 a.m.)
The Race is at the historic Taylor Park and will be comprised of 3 loops around the former site of the Illinois State Fair horse races, making for a unique 5K experience.
(We wonder how fast those horses ran the loop?!)
The Lincoln-Douglas 5K, One-Mile Fun Run and Kids Races combines a fun, fast, and competitive 5K race with a fun run and series of kids races that ultimately crowns the "Fastest Kid in Town." With a Start/Finish near the Lincoln statue in Freeport's historic Taylor Park, the LD 5K is family fun at its best!
An un-timed one mile fun run follows the first loop of the 5k course.
