The Best Small Race in America

By Marla Jones, Managing Editor

RAINSVILLE, Ala. — Runners from across the country will descend upon Rainsville for the “best small race in America” on June 15, 2019 for the 11th Annual Rainsville Freedom Run.  

The event is for runners and walkers of all ages and consists of a 5K and a 10K. The race will begin at Broadway Baptist Church on McCurdy Avenue South at 8 am.

Early packet pick-up for all runners/walkers will be Friday, June 14 from 4pm-8pm.  Runners/walkers can still register on the day of the race from 6am to 7:15am.  Race packets may also be picked up at that time. 

Over the span of ten years, the Rainsville Freedom Run has raised over $250,000 for a wide variety of charities and missions.   

Jerry Clifton, Rainsville Freedom Run Coordinator, asked that everyone be part of the “Community”.  Community is more than where you live, it is the people whose lives you intersect with, whether you know them or not.  For a little while on next Saturday morning, be a part of something bigger than yourself.  Run, walk or volunteer. There are so many ways you can help. You will never know whose lives you will impact.

We will see you at the finish line!
