About This Activity

Think you have what it takes to Beat Beethoven? Every runner and walker will have the opportunity to find out at the annual Beat Beethoven 5K Run/Walk. The event will take place at Noble Park in Paducah on Saturday, March 19, at 9:00 am. Participants of the 5K will again have the chance to line up and race the famous composer himself. Any runner who finishes before Beethoven will receive a FREE ticket to the Paducah Symphony's season ending performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony on April 16.

Beat Beethoven is a unique signature fundraising event that features a competitive 5K run/walk, and new this year, a non-competitive 1 Mile Youth and Family Fun Run. The 1 Mile Fun Run is a non-competitive event for youth or family members of all ages and skills. Whether you run, walk or skip, you’ll want to participate in this great event. Every child (under 12) participating in the Youth/Family Fun Run will receive a medal.

In addition, there will also be a “Beat Beethoven’s Hair Contest” sponsored by All Good Media. Spray your hair OR grab a wig and do the jig for your chance to win. Prizes for best Beethoven hair will be awarded to the top Adult and top Youth (under 12).
