Event programme

The team of Freedom Run 2.0 will strive to make this race more than just a race, but more an event which will gather like-minded individuals who care about the war and its victims. Despite the cause, we think that making the event as friendly and warm as possible is our key aim. We plan to have modern Ukrainian live music on the day, with light food and other refreshments for those running and supporting. Particular gifts will be presented to the fastest and most notable Freedom Run supporters.

Distribution of the start packages to the participants will be held next to the Bandstand at Battersea Park prior to the race. Runs for all distances will commence at the same time, with the exception of a 1.5km race (for kids) and 2.5km (for those willing to walk).

Please note there will be no distribution of start packages prior to the event. These will be distributed on the race day of 6th August 2023.
