Freedom Run

Join us for the 41st annual Freedom Run!

Whether you walk, run, stroll, or cheer from the sidelines, the Freedom Run is a great way to kick off your Fourth of July.

The scenic 5-kilometer (3.1 miles) course follows gently rolling terrain through residential areas, beginning at 8 am at Evergreen Middle School and ending with a festive finish line at the Evergreen Athletic Club. 

All proceeds go to Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice which provides home health care, palliative care, hospice, bereavement assistance, Camp Comfort for children who have lost a loved one, as well as emotional and spiritual needs assistance across our mountain community.
