About This Activity

Join us for the RUN FOR THE HORSES 5K on Friday, October 6th at 6pm at the Makers Mark Secretariat Center at the Kentucky Horse Park.  This will be a fun family friendly event on a quiet, country section of the Horse Park grounds.

Scenic course through the world-famous Kentucky Horse Park, and chip timing provided by RaceRise. Overall & age group awards will be presented (Top 3 M/F, 5 year age groups).

For those who can't run or walk with us in person we are offering a VIRTUAL RUNNER/WALKER option.  Register as a virtual runner/walker by September 26th and we'll mail you your commemorate race T-shirt.  You can (if you choose) run or walk your own 5K in your hometown and you'll be supporting Makers Mark Secretariat Center.


They run for us. They make the Bluegrass a unique place to live. Now it's time to run for them. Race proceeds go to raise funds for the care and preparation for second careers and loving new homes for the off-track Thoroughbreds of the Maker's Mark Secretariat Center!

The Maker's Mark Secretariat Center is located inside the Kentucky Horse Park, and the address is the KHP's address. For directions to the Maker's Mark Secretariat Center within the KHP, go to and scroll to the "Driving Directions" section.  It is located about 1/2 miles NW of Alltech Arena off Walt Robertson Lane.  There will be RaceRise signs to direct you back from the main KHP entrance.
