Freedom 5000

Claremont Village Freedom 5000

1K and 5K Run & Walk

This event is an annual partnership between the Claremont High Cross Country Team and the City of Claremont's Independence Day Committee. Nearly 1500 runners/walkers participate each year.

The Freedom 5000 is our major fundraiser and a great event that is held each year on the morning of July 4th at Memorial Park. We are responsible for the organization of this event, and so we need volunteers--parents and athletes--to help with registration, course management, awards ceremony, and much more. Please note that all athletes who are in town are expected to help work the race on the morning of the 4th, and on the afternoon of the 3rd to help with set-up.

You will receive emails in the run up to the event asking for your help; the continued success of our program relies on your willingness to volunteer.

Thanks to our sponsors!


Please help us get sponsors! Much of the money we raise from this event comes from sponsors. If you own a business, work at a business or organization, or have family or friends that do, please consider sponsoring. You can sponsor yourself, or ask if your friends/family/employer would be willing to sponsor the Freedom 5000. In the past parents and guardians have solicited sponsorships from various businesses and organizations with great success.
