2020 Kosciuszko Freedom Run: 4th Edition

The DC diplomatic community’s favorite run returns this year, virtually!

We invite all runners in the U.S. to celebrate with us the legacy of Thaddeus Kosciuszko, a Revolutionary War hero who served in the Continental Army and who helped America win its independence.


You can now run whenever and wherever you want! Register for the race and head outside for your 5K run between October 8 and 31.
Once you’re done, use the website below to self-report your time.
Registration is FREE but don’t delay – the first 200 registered finishers of the run will receive a custom-made commemorative medal! 


The 2020 Kosciuszko Freedom Run: 4th Edition is organized by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Washington, D.C. and the Embassy of Lithuania in Washington, D.C. in collaboration with the Montgomery County Road Runners Club.

As this year’s run will take place under an honor system, we would like to reward those runners who produce the most creative Facebook, Twitter or Instagram post about their 2020 Kosciuszko Freedom Run experience.
The four best submissions will receive goodie bags with unique prizes!
The rules of the contest are simple: Take a photo(s) that capture(s) your experience in running the 2020 Kosciuszko Freedom Run. Post your photo with a short description in English (max. 280 characters) on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtags #KosciuszkoFreedomRun and tagging the Polish and Lithuanian Embassies:

Facebook: @EmbassyofPolandWashingtonDC; @LTinUSA

Instagram: @polishembassyus; @ltinusa

Photos and/or captions referring to Thaddeus Kosciuszko’s American legacy (i.e. a runner showcasing a Kosciuszko-related landmark in the U.S.) are welcome but not required

The contest launches on October 8, 2020, and will end on October 31, 2020. Results will be announced in November 2020.

We can’t wait to see you on social media running your 5K in the 2020 KOSCIUSZKO FREEDOM RUN.
