2021 Virtual Freedom Run 5K/10K

The 2021 Freedom Run 5K/10K is a GO... virtually. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we feel it is in the best interests of the Georgia Southern and Statesboro communities, as well as all of you -- our family and friends, that we conduct the race virtually. Safety remains our top priority.

While we will miss seeing your smiling faces (again) in person, we hope that you will join us by sending in your 2021 Freedom Run photos and videos! By going virtual, this also allows the Eagle Battalion to include those alumni and friends who are stationed or deployed all over the world to still participate in such a valuable Eagle Battalion tradition.

This year's race will allow participants to complete their run or ruck between April 18th and April 24th. Participants will be provided with instructions on how to submit their times as race day nears.

We are a competitive bunch, so help us spread the word. Let's see how many states and countries we can represent this year!


The Freedom Run 5K/10K is hosted annually by Georgia Southern University's Army ROTC program. The event serves as the Eagle Battalion's primary fundraiser each year. Proceeds help fund the Eagle Battalion's day-to-day activities, ceremonies, and training events. Our ultimate goal is to raise enough funds to also provide additional training and scholarship opportunities for Cadets.


The Freedom Run 5K/10K is a family-friendly run! We encourage participants of all ages and skill levels.

-- 5K Run/Walk/Crawl: Participants of all ages and skill levels.

-- 5K Ruck: For runners 13 and over, the ruck division allows participants the opportunity to compete in a little more challenging event. Participants must use their own weighted rucksacks, backpacks, or vests and must maintain the minimum weight at all times. (Females: 30lbs, Males: 40lbs) There will be a weigh-in before and after the race. Awards will be presented to the top overall male and female finishers.

-- 10K Run: We ask that that participants maintain at least a jogging pace. No walkers.
