Freedom Four 4-Mile Run/Walk

JulyJul 04 2022



Start your July 4th holiday with a bang at the Freedom Four 4-Mile Run/Walk. A portion of the proceeds from this family-friendly event will go to the Friends of Glen Ellyn Parks’ Scholarship Fund, which allows families in need access to recreation and athletic programs for little to no cost. The race kicks off at 7:30 a.m. “sharp.” Awards will go to the top two male and female finishers in each age division immediately following the race and will be presented by Glen Ellyn’s own Ethan Cepuran, Bronze medalist in speedskating at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

New for ages 21 and up: A complimentary beer will be provided to registered participants over the age of 21 courtesy of Two Hound Red. The beer garden will be setup on the Boathouse deck and beverages must stay within the confines of the back deck and patio area. Beer will also be available for purchase by participants and spectators. Photo ID will be required to redeem/purchase alcoholic beverages.

Freedom Four t-shirts are guaranteed to those that register by the early bird deadline. Participants registering during regular registration or on the day of the race will receive a t-shirt while supplies last.
