Submit with registration your estimated finish time and race directors will contact certain participants to take part in the RRCA Sanctioned KY5K State Championship Elite Wave. The course is a beautiful, flat, fast 3 loop course that allows the Wildcat WOW Zone and DJ Freestyle to keep you running your fastest the whole time.
