30 For Freedom

30 For Freedom

Cedar Valley Church (map)

30 for Freedom is a movement that exists to end sex trafficking in our lifetime. We run to raise awareness about sex trafficking and funds to fight it. Our goal is to engage as many people as possible in crossing the “hero line” – the hero line is the difference between caring and action. Caring is good, but action changes lives.

The funds we raise go to carefully selected non profits who do three things: sex trafficking prevention, rescue operations, and survivor care.

People of all ages and stages are invited to run, walk, rollerblade, bike for freedom. The Twin Cities Chapter features a 5k, 10k, half marathon, and full 30 mile ultra marathon.

T-shirt deadline is May 1 so be sure to register by then to guarantee this year’s special edition shirt.

The 10.5k follows the road around Lake Sakatah. Just before the 4th mile the 10.5k goes off road for a 1⁄4 mile before connecting you with the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail and dive deep into the heart of the park finishing the last leg of your run surrounded by the beautiful green forest. This is a timed event.

The 11.6 mile bike ride follows the road around Lake Sakatah then continues east up a long steady hill for the first 7 miles. Before looping back and connecting with the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail. Helmets are required to ride in this event. This is not a race, official times will be given.

Beach (map)

Swimming to Madeline Island has been a storied feat around the Bayfield area for decades. Starting as a community swim for 24 people in 2006, the Point to La Pointe has grown into a thriving race that sells out annually at 500 swimmers.

It is approximately parallel to the route of the Madeline Island Ferry, finishing about 3/4 mile north of the ferry dock.  Swimmers have encountered all of Lake Superior's moods over the years, from calm, flat water to strong crosswinds with 2 foot waves. This event is registered with and approved by the US Coast Guard.
