Kentucky Horse Park Runwalk Club
The Kentucky Horse Park Run/Walk Club (#KHPRunWalkClub) will meet on Mondays from June 5 to September 25 (except Labor Day). Check-in is between 5-8pm. It all starts at the Kentucky Horse Park Visitor Center. Every week will feature a different variety of local craft beers, food trucks, music, vendors, yoga from 6:30pm-7:30pm, information tables and horse meet-and-greets. There will also be previews of some of the Kentucky Horse Park’s many attractions. This is a free event and participants can either run or walk at their own pace. Participants can also choose between a 2-mile loop and a 3.5-mile loop around the park. Kids, joggers/strollers and leashed dogs are welcome! For this particular date, we expect to offer pony rides, music by Living Proof Band, and outside vendors Rolling Oven and Bella Shaved Ice are scheduled to be here, as well.
*WHAT IS RUN/WALK CLUB?
Run/Walk Club is an open event for all to attend (for free!) at the Kentucky Horse Park! We have a 2 mile loop and 1.5 mile addition to walk or run at your own pace. Our goal is to bring those in the Lexington community together and explore the Kentucky Horse Park (which is only 10 minutes from downtown!)
