“Freedom is Never Free” 8K Run

Monday, May 27, 2019

Run through the hard fought Battlefields of the American Revolution and follow the names of the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

This 8K is sponsored by the Yorktown Rotary Club and starts at York High School then proceeds to Surrender Field. Along the path will be 130 signs with the names of 130 York County service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country--and lost their lives in combat. 

Every runner gets a t-shirt. 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.
