Join us at the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park on May 9th, 2020 to honor and commemorate John Sensenig’s 40+ years of service to the local running community. John has been a fixture in the local running and walking community since opening his first local running shop in 1977. Year-in and year-out, John and his Run/Walk Shop has been at the forefront of creating a lively and local running/walking family. After a lifetime of service and as John begins to step back from the day-to-day running of the shop, John’s Run Local 8k has grown from the desire to celebrate all he has given to the local Lexington and Central Kentucky community.
