Join us at the 6th Annual Rib Run taking place on July 4th at 8:00 AM! That's right kick off the days festivities at this family friendly 5k Run/Walk. Athletes will enjoy a very fast 5k race in the cooler morning temps, and get decked out in all the great SWAG Rib Runners had come to love. All participants will get the Comfy Rib Run Tee (perfect to show off on the 4th), and an EPIC Rib Run Finisher Medal! Circle back to the surrounding parking lots Saturday night for the annual firework show! The Hendricks County Rib Run is the perfect kick off to your 4th of July celebrations!


Live & Virtual Race Options

This year's Rib Run will allow participants the choice to race a live 5k event or race virtually. Please understand that things are constantly evolving, and there is a possibility that the live race could be switched to virtual. No refunds will be given

Live Race

Our participants safety is our main concern. We will cap the race at 200 and have a wave start to reduce congestion on the course and at the Start/Finish line. The Live race will take place at The Kingsway Christian Church on the morning of the 4th of July.

Virtual Race Option

We would love to have you participate in our 6th Annual Rib Run event, even if you're not comfortable in a live event quite yet or maybe you'll be travelling on the 4th. You may complete your 5k race anywhere or choose to race 1 of the 2 RaceJoy mapped courses from June 27th- Jully 11th. If you choose to race the RaceJoy courses, your family/friends may track you and send "cheers" along your route. Courses locations are: Kingsway Christian Church (same as live event course) and Hendrick's County Fair Grounds (preview for next year's course).
