The Hardin County History Museum proudly presents the 4th Annual “Tim Walker Founders' Day 5K Run/ Walk” Monday, July 4, 2022, at the Elizabethtown Sports Park. This historic event is dedicated to one of the original Founders' Day organizers and past Hardin County History Museum presidents, Tim C. Walker who also served as mayor from (2011-2013) before his term was cut short by his untimely death on June 14, 2013.
Tim Walker shaped the history of Elizabethtown and Hardin County and made it a better place, so please join us on July 4th!
Each registered runner will receive a Race T-shirt (registration deadline for the shirt is June 24, 2022)
Packet pickup will be race morning beginning at 7am. The race will begin at 8am. We will have the Elizabethtown Police Department on hand to manage any traffic flow while we are running on West Park Road. There will be a water stop at the 1.5 mile turnaround point. Bathrooms will be open for the runners at the Sports Park. This race is a fundraiser for the Hardin County History Museum and is in honor of our late Mayor Tim Walker who created Founders' Day and moving it to the Sports Park he loved and helped create makes the day even better. Invite some friends and we'll see you Saturday!
About Tim Walker
Tim was a lover of history and a wonderful leader here at the museum, in the local community, and in his church. As a leader, he shared his faith and his vision to improve the quality of life for all. This 5k is dedicated to his memory and was created to honor his legacy by bringing families together in downtown Elizabethtown to celebrate our city's birth. Robert F. Kennedy once said, “It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.”
