We’re shaking things up a bit with this race. We can tell you it’s a 5K run, 2-mile walk, and it’s in Rockcastle County. You won’t know the rest until the night before the race.

This race is a flat summer run, straight out a beautiful country road that meanders by a cool trickling stream, and then back to the finish. Proceeds benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

You can honor or remember your loved ones with a personalized Forget-Me-Not poster to be displayed at the race. Click here for information.

this run/walk. Stay tuned for more details.
