Running

Presents the July 4th

Freedom Road 5K and Jefferson Mile

A Benefit for
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP)

Go to LEAP and see why the police are speaking out.

The War on Drugs destroys lives and the economy while accomplishing absolutely nothing, other than overflowing the prisons and forcing violent offenders onto the street. As a result, in California we spend more for our prisons than we do for our schools.

This event has already been run. The results are posted here.

5K and Jefferson Mile

Both certified courses visit some of Golden Gate Park's best views. The mile is a flat, fast loop, while the scenic 5K course is relatively flat with a couple of easy hills and no repeats.   Both courses are certified. 

Tell your friends, corporate and church groups to take a stand for freedom, collect some pledges and walk and run with us. It is the least we can do for LEAP's courageous police officers.  These cops are getting the job done.  Our economic woes are causing the nation to rethink the failed War on Drugs and the policy of wasting money and lives by enforcing bad laws that have cost over $1.2 Trillion since Nixon started the War on Drugs.  Go to LEAP.cc and view their Videos.  Join LEAP, stand with these cops and get a miniature Gold LEAP Badge
