Liberty Patriots 5k on the 4th of July

July 4, 9am - 11am, Liberty Park

We at the OLHS men’s cross country team are exited to be hosting another Patriot 5k 4th of July race to raise money for the sport. Our mission is to create a fun and lively race in order to celebrate the fourth and show support for our community and Cross Country team. We also aim to donate shoes to the Soles4souls charity which takes old shoes and donates to those who need them. We believe this is a really good way for us to give back because runners do go through many pairs of shoes. Whether you are an active racer or just trying to enjoy the fourth, this is the best way to start of your 4th of July this year. Last year this race was held virtually, but we are pleased to announce that this year the race will be fully in person again. Along with the 5k race we also include a mile race/walk for more casual participants. All racers will also receive a T-Shirt for signing up and supporting the team. We are so exited for the race this year and we hope to see you there.
