About This Activity

Harry Potter fans get your “wands at the ready” and prepare to test your wizarding skills at a day of magical contests happening at City-County Park in Nicholasville.

Join us for the inaugural Hogwarts Hustle 3K on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at City-County Park in Nicholasville.

Find out if you’re as fast as a Firebolt broomstick in the chip timed Hogwarts’ Hustle 3K Race.  The race will be chip timed (Thanks RaceRise) with awards for top finishers.  We'll have music, food, drink, kids activities, a petting zoo and more!

Medals will be awarded to the first-place male and female runners in each age category (ages 5 -105) and to the first-place male and female runners representing each of the four Hogwarts’ houses – Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. Don’t forget to indicate which house you’d like to represent when you register!

Register online anytime up to race morning.
Race day registration is also available from 8:00 am to 9:30 am at City-County Park

Registration is FREE to Jessamine County Public Library card holders.  You'll need to have your JCPL library card handy as you'll need to enter that number for validation.  This free entry does not include a commemorative race shirt.  If you want to get a shirt they are $10.00.  Select your size (Men's, Women's and Youth sizes available) during the online registration process.
