Our 1st annual Derby Day 5K event will be situated in the heart of Milton, GA at Crabapple Market. This fun, family race will have us walking, trotting, and galloping through its local neighborhoods to celebrate the 2022 Kentucky Derby! Fascinators, Derby hats and bowties encouraged - Are you thinking sear-sucker running shorts?! Bring your family “team” to enjoy the race, awards, bounce houses and local restaurant tents all starting at 10AM. We’ll also have therapy horses to pet and therapists there to learn more about Byrdhouse Ministries. All proceeds will go to Byrhouse Ministries. This ministry - located right here in Milton, Georgia - provides space and experiences for people to reset, restore and recover through traditional- and trauma-focused equine therapy. Registered runners will love the commemorative Derby-themed medal and triblend T-shirt you’ll receive with your registration!
