About This Activity

The 5k & 10k runs promise to be challenging for experienced runners, and welcoming to first-timers and walkers. The 5k course is situated in the beautiful Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown. The new 10k course circles the lake, goes under Ring Rd through the tunnel, into the Veteran’s Park, and back. A great time for the entire family!

All proceeds from this 2nd Annual race will support our military families in Kentucky.
