5K on the Runway

Thursday, May 21, 2015

There are not many opportunities to take a jog down the runway, but 5K on the Runway at LEX gives you the chance to do just that- and help support a great cause, the United Way!  This year, we are excited to be a part of the fun as a sponsor, as well as a great team that will be running the race. Come join us June 20, 2015 for the 4th Annual 5K on the Runway at 8:30 am at the Bluegrass Airport.

Unlike any other course, you will be running on the runway and Bluegrass airport grounds; the course is timed by chip,  and strollers are welcome!  Early registration ends May 31, so there is more than enough time to register for the discounted price:  $25 for adults, $15 for ages 6-14.  Registration includes a t-shirt, and a voucher to a Lexington Legends game!

You can learn more and register here.

Proceeds from the event go towards the fundraising efforts of the United Way of the Bluegrass- an organization dedicated to community improvement.  The United Way works in Lexington and surrounding regions to create opportunities that lead to dynamic and exponential success for youth, adults, and families.  By focusing on these four key pillars of success, they make a big impact on our region with programs and assistance that are designed especially to meet the needs of our region:

Come enjoy music and entertainment at the finish line- there will also be concessions, inflatables and activities for kids, as well as a variety of vendors (including AirMart), and more!
