Voted "Best July Race" by Run Oregon in 2013! On the 4th of July in Molalla, thousands of people from all over the region will line our street to watch the parade. The Freedom 5K is a 3.1 mile race that mirrors the entire parade route just before the parade starts. This race is designed for both the serious athlete seeking a PR, as well as individuals and families just looking for a fun experience on the 4th of July. Aside from the thrill of having thousands of people to cheer you on as you accomplish your goal, the race also takes you through historic downtown Molalla, and provides a great way to see our community. Race is capped at 550 racers.
