Our race will feature our signature 8K (4.97 miles), a 4K (2.5 miles) run/walk, and Kids' 1/4 Mile Dash. The races will cover much of the scenic Keeneland grounds. Run or walk the 4K with strollers welcomed. The 8K is a double loop course and only for runners who can maintain a 15 minute/mile pace.
We also have a Virtual Runner/Walker category for those who want to support our race and cause but who cannot join us in person. Register as a virtual runner/walker, and we'll mail your race packet (bib & race shirt), and you can run/walk your own DV8K or 4K on your own timeline anywhere in the world.
The 2023 DV8K Run will raise funds to further DV8's mission of employing people in early stages of addiction recovery.

Our packet pickup is Friday, August 18th from 3-6 p.m. at DV8 Kitchen (East End location at the corner of Midland and Third Street). DV8 Kitchen will be open for business until 8 p.m. on Friday, so come get your packet and grab a bite to eat with other runners. Free giveaways for all who pick up their packet on Friday.
There will be race day packet pickup from 7:15-8:30 a.m. at Keeneland, but we encourage all local runners to pickup on Friday and make your race day experience smooth and easy.
FORM A LIFE-CHANGING TEAM AND SAVE!
Form a Life-Changing Team of 5 or more runners/walkers, and you can all SAVE $3 on your individual registrations. Teams can be as large as you want.
It's simple to CREATE A TEAM when you register. Give yourself a TEAM NAME (the more creative, the better!) and invite your friends, family, running buddies, or co-workers to join your team. When they register (after you), they will be able to select your team from a list of existing teams. For the team pricing, the first 4 members of a team will pay full price. The 5th person joining + anyone joining the team afterward will pay the current registration fee with a $3 discount. When the 5th person joins to fully consummate a 5 person team, the first 4 registrants will each be refunded $3 on their credit card. Team members can be participating in any of our four events: the 8K, 4K, 1K Kids' Dash, or Virtual Run/Walk. If you want to create a password to be shared and used when your team members join the team, that is allowed (but not required). There will be no formal competition between the teams other than our recognizing the largest team, but this gives you a way to save and get your friends and family involved in this fun race.
