Freedom Run 5K/10K

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. We have added two new events to the 2018 race:

-- 5K Ruck Division: 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.

-- Fun Run: Children 12 and under can participate in the 1/4-Mile Fun Run. This race has a delayed start time so that families participating in the 5K/10K events can be back in time to cheer their children on at the finish line!

The run was great except for the students standing at all of the turn points sometimes didn't know what was going on. They also were not very enthusiastic. I said "HOOAH" to several of them as I was running and they just stared at me. I'm old school Army so maybe the new Army just doesn't say HOOAH anymore?
