Join us for the race that celebrates all that is great about Lexington!


Join us for the 4th Annual BIG LEX 4 Miler on Saturday, May 25, 2024 at 8:00am at historic Keeneland Race Course.  

The race will be a celebration of all things Lexington as we officially kick off summer in the Bluegrass.  Our race will feature commemorative race shirts (Men's and Women's sizes available), a unique 4 mile race course through the historic Keeneland grounds, an exciting team competition, overall and age group awards, DJ, free race photos and more.

In addition to the signature 4 Miler, we'll also have a 1 Mile Fun Walk, Little LEX Kids' 1/4 Mile Fun Run/Walk, and Virtual Runner/Walker opportunity.  Virtual runners/walkers make a donation to the race, and we will mail them their commemorative race shirt and bib.  This allows anyone anywhere to join in the fun!

PACKET PICKUP  We will have packet pickup on Friday, May 24th from 3-6pm at Fleet Feet Lexington at The Summit at Fritz Farm.  There will also be race morning PPU from 6:45-7:45am at Keeneland near our race Start/Finish area.

REFERRAL REWARDS   Refer 3 friends or family members who sign up for the race using the unique registration link you'll receive when you register and earn a $10 REFUND on your original registration.  It pays to refer friends to this race!

TEAM PRICING  Consider forming a SOCIAL TEAM team to expand your race day experience.  We'll have a prize for the largest team.   For teams of 5 or more, members will receive a $3.00 price discount on their race registration.  Don't go it alone--form or join a team!

VIRTUAL RUNNER/WALKER OPTION  We are offering a virtual runner/walker option for those who cannot make the in-person race or choose not to participate at that time.  We'll plan both a local packet pickup and/or mail packets to those who choose to "go virtual" and live outside of Central Kentucky.

Matchstick Goods - Our 2024 Race Charity Beneficiary

Matchstick Goods is a business based out of a larger nonprofit here in North Lexington called Common Good. For about twelve years now, Common Good has been mentoring youth through after-school programming. About four years ago, we started a ceramics business called Matchstick Goods to create employment opportunities and additional mentoring touch points with that same community of students and recent grads. 

Today, we have four high-school age youth and two Common Good grads that work with us in creating beautiful pottery. In addition to learning about the art of ceramics, they also get training in areas such as communicating with customers, skills needed to operate a small business, product design, and public speaking. We’re immensely proud of our team and the amazing things they create. You can learn more about us and shop our products at
