Freedom Run

Saturday, June 1st, 2019 at 8am to Noon-ish - Sunny Lake, Aurora Ohio

Freedom Greyhound Rescue is an organization consisting of a group of dedicated, hard working volunteers that share a love for greyhounds. Our vision is to help retired racing greyhounds reach their forever homes, taking them from the track, to house, to loving home.

By participating in this event, you will be helping raise money for these great dogs and supporting their search for their happy and healthy home. The race will be held at Sunny Lake Park in Aurora.

Feel free to bring your dog, as many of our foster and adopted greyhounds will be along the course, cheering you on. You can also explore the dog park at Sunny Lake!

If you are unable to attend, you can do the virtual 5K or 1.75 miles from anywhere! You will receive a t-shirt after the day of the race.

There will be rewards for overall top female and male finisher, as well as top three finishers in each of the following age groups: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and over. Also awards for top dog in the Mutt Strut!

There will also be drawings for gift baskets and gift cards after the race! To receive this year's t-shirt in the correct size, you must register by May 15, 2019.

Pre-registration cost is $20.

Same day registration is $25.

Virtual run registration is $25.

Same day registration and packet pick up will open at 7:30 am. Both races will start at 8:30, near the E. Mennonite Road entrance to the park. The 5K participants will be running an out and back course while the Mutt Strut will continue along the 1.75 mile loop around the beautiful lake.

We will have refreshments and awards at the finish, as well as door prizes.
