About This Activity

Join us for the 3rd Annual RK-5K, The Twilight Run at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event on Friday, April 28, 2017 at 6:30pm at the Rolex Stadium on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park.  We'll have a dynamic warm-up lead by trainers from OrangeTheory Fitness at 6:15pm followed by a short program prior to our race start.

The race will feature a chip timed/competitive 5K run and an untimed 1 Mile fun run/walk.  All 5K & 1 Mile participants will receive a commemorative RK-5K technical T-shirt and kids (under 12) participating in the fun run/walk will receive a finishers medal.  DJ, Overall & Age Group Awards (5K), Raffle and a beautiful race course. Sign up by April 18th to ensure you get a commemorative shirt!

We have added a VIRTUAL RUNNER/WALKER category for those who can't run/walk with us in person in Lexington on April 28th.  Register by 4/20/17 for $30 and we'll mail you your race T-shirt and make a donation on your behalf to Central Kentucky Riding For Hope.  Then if you want to run/walk your own "virtual 5k" in your hometown you're welcome to do that.

STROLLERS & DOGS  Runners/walkers with strollers, and dogs on a leash are welcomed to join in the fun.  We just ask that both groups start toward the back at the beginning of the race.

THURSDAY PACKET PICKUP/REGISTRATION   We will hold an advanced race packet pickup/registration on Thursday, 4/27/17 from 4-7pm at J&H Outdoors Store (189 Moore Drive, Lexington, KY 40503).  Avoid the race day rush and come pickup your packet (or those for friends/family members) and shop in Lexington's Premiere Outdoors Store.

RACE DAY PACKET PICKUP/REGISTRATION is available at Rolex Stadium on Friday, 4/28 beginning at 2:00pm near our Start/Finish area on Rolex Way.
