Take action as a Freedom Fighter in the 5th annual Action169 Freedom Race 5k 10k to end commercial sexual exploitation, which includes sex trafficking. Freedom Race 5k 10k gives you the opportunity to live as a modern day abolitionist.

Take action and run the race to fight exploitation one step at a time.

Professionally timed by Anderson Race Management, the race raises awareness and funds to combat the realities of this modern day injustice in specific ways. Representatives from businesses, as well as various sponsors work together to achieve the cultural heart-level change required to end exploitation and decrease related vulnerabilities such as problematic substance use.

100% of the proceeds go towards the ongoing prevention, intervention and direct restoration services provided by Action169, a Minnesota, faith-based organization that also supports and empowers other survivor-led and informed organizations domestically. This year, not only is Action169 celebrating five years of Freedom Fighters like you running the race, but the organization is also celebrating five years as a recognized organization on the front-lines of this justice movement.

We are believing for an additional $5,000 in race donations to go towards direct restoration services offered for women 18+. Raise support by raising funds for your run. Or, donate by clicking on a registered participant to contribute towards their race at FreedomRace2019.com. Click the donate button next to a participants name, and the amount given counts towards individual or team fundraising goals.

FAQ:

Will this race be chip-timed? 
We’d love to provide that level of accuracy, but our permit with the Park and Rec Board does not allow for chip timing. We will have a clock at the finish line, though there will be a little give and take, based on when you pass the starting line. This is a fun run and is not USATF certified. If you’re timing yourself with a GPS-based phone or watch, there may be slight variability in the final distance.

That’s a lot of people to have running on one path. What can the runners and walkers do to alleviate the congestion? 
So true, and thanks for asking! J Participants will be encouraged to start in corrals, according to their anticipated finish times. This year, we’re starting in the parking lot to avoid congestion on the trail at the start. While you’re running or walking, keep your eyes up to watch for folks you may meet who are not part of the race. And in the spirit of fun and community-building, keep the safety of all on the trail as a top priority!

I want to walk in the 5K, but I also want to watch my kids pass the finish line. How can I do both? 
If you’d prefer to be at the finish line, you may delay your starting time for the walk until after the runners are finished. You’ll still register as a walker and receive a shirt, but your time won’t be recorded according to the race clock.

Can I run while pushing my child(ren) in a stroller? And if so, do I need to pay extra? 
You certainly can. And there is no additional charge for your additional workout. We recommend that you start near the back of the pack to avoid contact with the ambitious runners at the front, just to be safe.

What is included in the post-race programming? 
Awards, food, a bouncy house, games for kids, a 50 yard dash for kiddos, more food, and loads of fun and community!

May I wear headphones while I run? 
Headphones are permitted in the race, but we will be sharing the course with the general public. Please be respectful, since we are the school’s ambassadors. (And we think you’ll have a more enjoyable race listening to the kids running near you!)

Will there be a bag check at registration? 
Unfortunately, no.

Any further questions? 
Please contact race directors - Amy Anderson a.anderson5771@gmail.com or Angela Byers angelablankespoor@hotmail.com
