Miles For Marrow 5K

Sat March 28, 2020 Lexington, KY US 40511 Directions
Join us for the inaugural Miles For Marrow 5K and help us save lives through the power of bone marrow transplant.

We have shifted our race to a Virtual Event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will leave online registration open until Friday, March 20th at midnight.  After that we'll order our race shirts and will be mailing those out to those who have registered.  Then you can run/walk your own "virtual race" on your own schedule.  We appreciate your support for our cause.

Join us for the inaugural Miles For Marrow 5K Presented by UK College of Pharmacy as we raise funds and awareness for Be The Match, which works everyday to save lives through transplant.

Our race is Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 9:00am at Coldstream Park (Address: 1850 Pisacano Dr, Lexington, KY 40511).  Come run or walk our 5K and receive a commemorative race shirt.  Chip timing (Thanks RaceRise) with overall and age group awards.  Form a social team of 5 or more and you all SAVE $3 on your registration.  Prizes for the largest team and also the "Best Match" (see details below).  Save $5 if you are a student by registering for our special Student Rate.

Our BEST MATCH contest involves two participants dressing up as a "match" to emphasize the Be the Match theme. The team who comes dressed in the best coordinated “matching” outfit will win a prize. Examples of matches or pairs include PB&J, Mario and Luigi, or simply dressing up like twins with a friend. 

We also have a VIRTUAL RUNNER/WALKER opportunity if you can't join us in person but want to support our cause.  Virtual runners/walkers make a $25 donation and we'll mail you your commemorative race shirt.  Our virtual participants can then run/walk (optional) their own Miles For Marrow race on their own schedule.

5K PRICING:  $19 from January 23-February 7, $25 from February 8-March 15, $30 from March 16-28


Our race charity beneficiary is Be The Match, whose mission is to save lives through cellular therapy and transplant.  100% of race proceeds and participant donations will go to support their lifesaving work.
