Description

Join us for the 42nd Annual Bluegrass 10,000 on July 4, 2018.  Our certified 10,000 meter course weaves through the main business and historic district in downtown Lexington.  The race is is part of Lexington's Fourth of July Festival sponsored by  Lexington Parks and Recreation and the Downtown Lexington Corporation.   

NEW FOR 2018 - FREE RACE PHOTO DOWNLOADS, RACE PACERS, FASTEST FIVE COMPETITION & BLUEGRASS 10000 TRAINING PROGRAM!

We've added team pricing and a Fastest Five Competition.  Individual registration is $35 but for teams of 5 or more team members only pay $25 each.  Teams can be as large as you want to make them.  The Fastest Five Competition will be the cumulative scores/times of the top 5 members of a team compared with the same from all other teams.  Why go it alone?  Start a team or join an existing team you might be affiliated with.  CLICK HERE for a list of existing teams or to start a team of your own.  Also there will be a prize awarded to the "Best Team Name" so be creative!

Runners participating as part of a team are eligible for both individual awards and the Fastest Five team award.
