DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER THE 5K HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Once again Mother Nature has caused us to evaluate the status of the Heart, Sole & Glove 5K race scheduled for this Sunday, March 8th. After considering the safety conditions of the course we are forced to cancel the race without rescheduling. Since we will not be rescheduling the race, a full refund/credit in the amount of the race fee ($20.00) will be issued to those who have pre-registered via RunSignUp. We hope you hang on to your $20 and come out and run with us again at next year’s 5K.
An annual family-friendly 5K run/walk open to the entire Lexington community and hosted every February by University of Kentucky Health & Wellness. UK students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate. All participants receive on race day a FREE pair of gloves featuring the race logo!
A portion of race revenue is donated to a different charity each year. This year's beneficiary is the Big Blue Pantry, an organization dedicated to providing University of Kentucky students food who may be experiencing food insecurity and/or hunger.
Prizes are awarded for overall top finishers male/female. Awards are also given to male/female winners by age division (no duplicates from overall winners).
We love dogs, but they are not allowed on the race course.
Please keep in mind that weather is unpredictable, so be prepared for wet/snowy weather. There will be no refund of race fee in the event of a cancellation. Local media will be informed in the event of cancellation.
$25 same-day registration on March 8 at the race
$20 early bird registration by Friday, March 6 at 4 pm
