I just found out about the Freedom Run 10K and 5K last week while driving to Warner Robins, GA for the Museum of Aviation Marathon. The race takes place at Clayton State University in Morrow, Georgia on February 12th, 2011. My buddy Jim runs this race every year, except last year when he swore off all races. He has since recovered from those crazy thoughts and hopefully we'll both run it this year. I've just got to convince my wife that this is a good idea!
CSU President, Tim Hynes is an avid runner. Race Director Mike Mead, is the Assistant Athletic Director at the University and the Head Cross Country/Track Coach. Coach Mead is also a contributor to the popular Run Georgia website.
The important thing about the Freedom Run 10K is that the course is USATF certified and that it's considered by the Atlanta Track Club to be one of the ten Peachtree Road Race qualifying races in the Metro Atlanta area. The 5K course is not certified.
Here's a look at the 10K course.
Registration is only $20 before February 7th, 2011.
