For the first time ever, President Lincoln’s Cottage is combining its two popular events, the Freedom 5K and Family Day, into one full day of racing and family fun: Homecoming. During the Civil War the Lincoln family called the Cottage home. This year we welcome everyone back “home” to join us for a full day of activities where you can run, walk, and play like Lincoln.
Come for just the race, just Family Day activities, or stick around for both.
The fourth annual Freedom 5K kicks off the day at 9am. (With a pre-race stretch session led by Petworth’s Lighthouse Yoga). Registration for the race is $35. A free, 100-yard TOT DASH follows the 5K at 10am. From 10am-3pm, join us for a day of FREE family friendly activities on Lincoln’s lawn, including a Civil War encampment, pony rides, music, make your own Lincoln hat (plus other arts and crafts), food trucks, tours of the Cottage, and more!
All proceeds from the race go towards President Lincoln’s Cottage, a private non-profit and only National Monument in the country to not receive federal funding.
