Due to limited parking on BYU campus near the start lines for the Freedom Run, we HIGHLY recommend parking at Level Edwards Stadium or the Marriott Center and walking to the respective start lines. This will also make your exit from the event much easier due to traffic restrictions around the central and southern parts of BYU campus on race day.
Packet-pickup will be on Monday, July 3rd ONLY, at Provo Rec Center in the Multi-Purpose room (east end of facility). We will be open from 9:00am till 4:00pm. We love our volunteers, and we know you do, too! Please be courteous to them when picking up your swag or by ensuring someone else can get your bib and swag if you cannot be to the pick up before 4pm.
At packet-pickup, you will receive your bib number with a timing chip attached, your race shirt, race medal, and possible additional swag. You need to show ID to pick up your packet. We do allow family members to pick up packets of their relations/friends, but they must sign for the goods!
Disclaimer: Shirts and other goodies are distributed at packet-pickup. They are not available to those that miss the event. You are buying admission to the event, not the bag of goodies.

This year, we will have timing chips built right into your racing bib. No more clipping chips from your running shoes!! Timing works best when you wear our racing bib on the front of your shirt or shorts, and have the bib on the top layer of clothing.
Runner positioning should coincide with your bib number. We will assign bib numbers based on your self-reported expected pace. Ultimately we really need the fast runners in the front and the slower runners toward the back at the starting line. Remember: your official chip timing does not start until you cross the start mat, so keeping an order to the speed of runners keeps the race flowing smoothly!
If you intend to push a wheeled device (stroller), we require that you start with the other wheeled devices after the runners have gone. Strollers can really jam up the works and we really don’t want any collisions between runners and strollers. Please be very attentive of all the runners and walkers around you. Give runners a wide berth if you pass them.
No bicycles, unicycles, or other wheeled devices (exception: strollers) allowed on the course.
On-course Water Stations
The 10K has two on-course water stations. One just after the 3M mark and one just after the 5M mark. We want to keep you hydrated!

Post Race Food
We will load up on post-race refreshments. It is tough to have a full selection of everything by the end of the race. No guarantees, but we will do our best to keep everything stocked to the very end.
Close parking is a challenge. We encourage you to park in the big BYU parking lots at the Marriott Center and Levell Edwards (football) stadium. Some side street parking can be found as well near Kiwanis Park. We prohibit parking on the race route. If you are running the 5K, we HIGHLY encourage you to park in the BYU football stadium parking lots and walk south through campus to the 5K start line on 800 N. It is much easier to arrive and depart from north of the race area!
