Freedom's Frontier Heritage Traveler

Run

I once did a 10K run while on vacation in Savannah, Georgia. I know, a 6.2 mile run isn’t many people’s idea of a vacation, but hear me out. The race was advertised as traveling through five of Savannah’s historic district and benefited the Historic Savannah Foundation. At the pace I run (slow), I knew I would get a much better look at the historic homes and neighborhoods than I could on any trolley tour.

You can get a similar good look at some of our partner sites and historic neighborhoods by lacing up your shoes and going for a run in Freedom’s Frontier. You can plot your own route, of course, or you can let someone else do that work for you by signing up for a fun run/race. One of my favorite runs in the heritage area is the Wilderness Run. The Wilderness Run is an off-road trip through the hills of Hodge Park that begins and ends among the historic buildings of Shoal Creek Living History Museum. Prairie State Park also sponsors a trail run through the native prairie grasses and wildflowers. If you prefer a road race, check out the 2015 schedule compiled by the Mid-America Running Association.

Our Education & Interpretation Manager, Managing Director and FFNHA friend get ready to run the Wilderness Run at Shoal Creek Living History Museum.
