FSRC Independence 5000

Saturday July 4th, 2020

Frederick, MD

Official Website


We are very hopeful that we will be able to hold a safe in-person race in 2021, with some adjustments and accommodations to ensure the safety of our runners and volunteers.  ​

Rest assured that we are developing detailed COVID safety plans up front, so that we are able to define the appropriate approach as race day draws near.

Stay tuned for updates!

Here's How It Works

  • You must be a member of FSRC to run the race (see below)

  • Register for the 5k

Free for FSRC Members

Our low-key races are free for Steeplechaser members, so YAY!

You must be a club member on race day in order to get free race entry. When you register, the race fee may initially be displayed, but then will be removed as a discount as you go through the check-out process. So DON'T panic if you see the fee!

If you’re not a club member, you can join at https://runsignup.com/fsrc.  If you are renewing a membership, you can renew at https://runsignup.com/Club/SearchForRenew/668

If you think you are a paid member of the club and you can't register for free, please check the spelling of the name you used to join the club, using https://runsignup.com/Club/SearchForRenew/668. The system checks for a matching birth date, so please check your RunSignUp profile. If this still doesn't offer the ability to register for the race for free, email [email protected] for assistance.

Finally - if you currently have an individual membership and would like to upgrade to "Two-In-Household" or "Family" membership in order to get the free race entry for family members, contact our membership committee at [email protected].


The Independence 5000 will count towards the FSRC Grand Prix participation award for 2021 (four races required).
