2019 James W. Foley Freedom Run


On Saturday, October 19th, 2019 (NH) and Sunday, October 20th, 2019 (DC), thousands of runners globally will turn out to Run for Jim. Runners from all over the world will participate in this one of a kind road race to support the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation, in remembrance of Jim, a native of New Hampshire, and all Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms.

Now in its fifth year, The Foley Freedom Run consists of a traditional 5K Run/Walk held in both Rochester, NH, on October 19th and in Washington, DC on October 20th as well as a “Virtual” Run/Walk, held all over the world! The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation invites you to share in Jim’s mission and legacy. We seek those who value moral courage and have a compassionate commitment to freedom for Americans taken hostage abroad, freedom of the press, protection and equity for independent conflict journalists and the basic human rights of all people.
