About This Activity

 Please join us for our Freedom 5k Run at historic Washington Crossing Park to help provide freedom for those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.  All money raised will benefit our local campus of Teen Challenge, an international faith-based rehabilitation left.

The event will be hosted by Pennington AG Church as part of our initiative to help those who live with addiction and to help the neighborhood get moving. All are welcome to come run, walk, volunteer, or just hang out!  Our local chapter of Teen Challenge will be providing live music as well as activities for young children.




The event will feature two types of race events:


1. 5K Trail - scenic course consisting of rugged terrain, small fallen trees, bridges, and hills. Racers will be seeded in one of 3 competition levels:


    • Competitive – For ages 13 and up.  


    • Casual – For ages 13 and up.


    • Walkers – For ages 10 and up.


** *Note: NO strollers will be allowed on the 5k Trail ***


2. Family Fun Mile – Non-competitive 1 mile course for the entire family!  This course is both child and stroller friendly.
