Lakeside Lager Cross Country 5k/10k

Fri July 31, 2020 Lexington, KY 40509 US Directions

Virtual Race WITH BEER!

In following the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the  state, we have made the decision to not hold an in-person Lakeside Lager this year. Instead, we'll be shifting the event to a virtual run with a TWIST! 

Our friends at Chevy Chase Inn (CCI) reopened on July 1 and have agreed to be the beer provider for this year's virtual race. Run your virtual race any time from July 31st to August 9th (either on your own or on our suggested 5k or suggested 10k routes from John's Run/Walk Shop in Chevy Chase) and then swing by the shop to pick up your race packet. You’ll still get your shirt, custom pint glass, and 2 beer tickets to use at CCI, which is mere steps away from the Shop. Your tickets are good for any 2 West Sixth Beers at CCI.   

You registration will be automatically transferred to the virtual option before race day. 

Packet Pickup will run the whole time from July 31st until August 9th during John's Run/Walk Shop business hours:

M-F 10 AM - 6 PM, Saturday 10 AM - 6 PM, Sunday 12 PM - 5 PM

At this point in the year, the move to a virtual event probably comes as no surprise. We know you’ve seen countless races and events get cancelled, or go virtual. All of us at John’s Bluegrass Racing have been humbled by the continued support from all of our racers, volunteers, partners, and the Central Kentucky running community. We are looking forward to the day we can all race together again, but until then, we’re going to continue doing everything in our power to put on fun, meaningful events, that give you the opportunity to run or walk for awesome community causes. 

We can’t wait to see where race day takes you!

Lakeside Golf Course, Lexington Parks and Recreation, and John’s Run/Walk Shop present a one-of-a-kind cross country race to be held at Lakeside Golf Course and Jacobson Park! Choose from a 5k or 10k evening cross country race overlooking the beautiful Jacobson Park Reservoir. Stick around after the race to enjoy the evening with food trucks and live music on the golf course! Race amenities include a beautiful cross country course, race T-shirt, race-themed pint glass award, and a beer at the finish line to those of age. Register for all three races in the series for a special finisher's award at the end of the series! 

The 5k will be open to walkers, but we will be enforcing a cutoff pace of 16 minute miles for the 10k due to concerns with sunset.
