Yorktown Freedom Run 8K Memorial Day, May 29
The Yorktown Freedom Run will return for 2023! The race will again be an 8K race on the Yorktown Battlefield on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 2023. Registration and Start/Finish is adjacent to York High School.
The race commemorates Memorial Day and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom. The Freedom Run is operated by the Yorktown Rotary Club, and all proceeds go to the Yorktown Rotary Foundation to provide scholarships at local high schools and give support to a wide range of youth and community services as shown on the Community Service page.
The 8K starts at York High School then proceeds to Surrender Field. Along the path will be 130 signs with the names of 130 York County service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country–and lost their lives in combat.
Bottled water and plenty of refreshments after the race. Medals are given to runners in 26 categories and cash awards are given to the top three male and female runners in the Open and Master’s categories.
Registration ends May 27, 2023
