KENTUCKY HORSE PARK RUN/WALK CLUB

The Kentucky Horse Park Run/Walk Club (​#KHPRunWalkClub) will meet on Mondays from June 4 to September 24 (except Labor Day). Check-in is between 5-8 p.m. 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 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., and information tables from charities and local vendors. Thanks to our 2018 sponsors, Estepp Energy and Real Time Pain Relief, 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! 

*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!)

*WHEN IS RUN/WALK CLUB?
The Kentucky Horse Park Run/Walk Club meets every Monday from June 4 through September 24 (except Labor Day) from 5-8 p.m. Guests will check in at the Visitor center and have a chance to stop and talk with the vendors and charities that are set up.
