Virtual Race Option

Due to rising COVID numbers, we are offering a virtual option for racers who prefer not to participate in the in-person event. Runners can complete any 5K course and report their time to kate@artcenterky.org by end of day on September 19th. The official downtown course will be marked on Wednesday, September 15th for those wishing to run locally.

Virtual runners are not eligible for awards, but will receive race shirts as long as they are among the first 125 people to register for the event. Shirts can be picked up at the Art Center after September 16th.
