Kick off your 4th of July Holiday one day early here in St. Germain at the Northwoods' best Independence Celebration. The festivities begin bright and early on Sunday, July 3; put on your running shoes and start the day by participating in the 12th Annual Freedom 5K Fun Run. This 5K Trail Run winds you through the beautiful forest grounds surrounding the St. Germain Community Park. Little runners can enjoy a running challenge on a kids 1K loop run.

This event was started in 2005 in an effort to raise money for the new Bike and Hike trail which was being developed in the community. In the past eleven years, more than $33,000.00 has been raised to benefit non-motorized recreational trails in St. Germain.

The 3.1 mile run begins in the parking lot of the St. Germain Community park. The mostly off-road trail consists of primarily flat, packed dirt and gravel trail of varying width, winding through a quiet, scenic wooded area on Town of St. Germain and Wausau Homes property.
