Spectator tips

There is plenty of room for spectators along the course. Volunteers and participants will enter through Gate 1 (directly across from Man O’ War Boulevard), past the entrance to the Entertainment Center, and turn right onto the gravel road. At top of hill, turn right and park in the field behind Keene Library. Do not park beyond the white rope fencing – due to buried irrigation system. [Map to parking area]

This free event will take place in the back parking lot 30 minutes prior to the start of the 5K. All kids who participate in the Fun Run will receive awards. Kids can choose to also run or walk in the 5K, but will have to pay the children's registration fee of $15 in order to participate in the 5K. No need to register the kids for the Fun Run — just have them there by 10:15 a.m. The Fun Run will start promptly at 10:30.

New course: Last year we got a lot of feedback about the layout of the course. In response to those who found the course confusing, we are changing it this year to eliminate the "looping" part where the same ground is covered twice. This year's course covers more ground, so you get to see more of the Keeneland property. And we will make sure it is well-marked and that there are plenty of volunteers along the way to keep participants on course.

Thanks to all who participated and especially those who volunteered to make our first 5K event a tremendous success!
