Traverse a pastoral landscape that winds past ponds, fields, historic buildings and vistas on this breath-taking course that is otherwise closed to the public. The run culminates on the foot of the lawn at President Lincoln’s Cottage, where a ceremony will take place. The annual Freedom 5K is an unique opportunity for members of the public to race through the 250-acre grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home – home to hundreds of veterans who fought for freedom – in NW Washington, DC. Runners can see unique views of downtown DC, including the Capitol Building, Washington Monument, Basilica, and National Cathedral.
Winners will receive a private 10 person tour of the Cottage, 2 tickets to our Bourbon & Bluegrass event in May (tickets usually sell out in weeks!) and more.”
