Fort Knox Derby Dash 5K

Sat April 30, 2022 Fort Knox, KY 40121 US Directions



2723 Spearhead Division Loop
Fort Knox, KY US 40121


Kick-off Derby week with the Race Before the Race! Lace-up your racing shoes and experience the best of Fort Knox in the first annual Derby Dash 5k. This first-class event features chip timing, kids race, goody bags, age group awards, prizes from local running stores for top finishers, and more! The race starts and finishes at the Sam Adams Brewhouse. Bring some extra cash because once you’ve completed your own “run for the roses”, you'll want to join us for the after-party at Sam Adams Brewhouse!  We'll also have Fort Knox related merchandise for sale and a chance to purchase extra "opportunity" tickets for a post-race drawing with some really great prizes. Each 5K participant starts with one chance to win. Buy more for better chances.  

If you are associated with a military unit (soldiers, civilians, friends and family all count!), then indicate which unit you are with when registering.  The unit with the most registrants will take home a trophy!  

Coming from outside Fort Knox?  Don't have base access?  Go to the Garrison webpage (link below) to sign up for a "5 day fast pass".  You can do that now, no need to wait.  Alternately, stop by the Fort Knox Visitors Center before race day to acquire an annual pass.  Either way, be sure to take care of it before race day to avoid delays.  (If you must get it on race day, stop by the Visitor's Center for a pass... but plan extra time.)
