The Freedom 5K Fun Run (formerly Haden’s Heart) begins a day full of classic Fourth of July events in Clark Fork, Idaho.
Featuring a new name and an even more scenic course, the 5K event is put on by The Filling Station Youth Center. The Fun Run generates college scholarships for Clark Fork High School graduates as well as funds to operate the youth center.
This family-oriented event starts at the youth center at 1st and Main at 7 a.m. and winds its way up the scenic Lightning Creek valley providing some beautiful vistas over the creek. Participants will be shuttled back to The Filling Station where refreshments and showers will be available to get you prepared for the rest of a fun-filled day.
A custom T-shirt and plenty of smiles are included. Discounts for students and family members participating with students encourage families to run or walk together. Register early at fillingstationyouth.com to guarantee T-shirt availability. Registration is also available at the youth center before the race.
