The Derby Dash 5K  will support the University of Kentucky Eventing Team. There will be overall and age group awards, snacks, a photographer, and tons of fun. Race T-shirts are included in the entry fee of $25.  Runners and walkers of all levels are welcomed.  We allow strollers and dogs on fixed length leashes as well. The race will start at 9 AM and runners will get to enjoy beautiful Kentucky scenery. We look forward to seeing you there! 

We also have a VIRTUAL RUNNER/WALKER opportunity if you can't make the race in person.  If you register as a virtual runner/walker for $30 we'll mail you your commemorative shirt and you'll be making a donation to UK Eventing.  Then you can run/walk (optional) your own Derby Dash on your own schedule.  This allows anyone, anywhere to be part of our event.

Our PACKET PICKUP will occur on race morning (Sunday, May 3rd from 7:45-9am) at The Club at UK's Spindletop Hall (Back parking lot).

We appreciate your support of our 5K race and UK Eventing.  All proceeds and donations from the race will go to support our team and the cost of competing.

The University of Kentucky Dressage and Eventing Team was designed to allow students to compete and support each other at local shows and events. The club is for all students interested in dressage and eventing and has two competitive teams that make up the club. The dressage team is a club sport that competes at IDA, Intercollegiate Dressage Association, shows regionally.

The eventing team is less formal and competes at IEL, Intercollegiate Eventing League, events. IEL is growing rapidly and UKDET is very excited to be a part of! Mixed teams compete against each other in a team challenge setting. When not competing at an EIL event members try to attend events and stable together at USEA area VIII shows and combined tests. The event team can also be seen volunteering at shows in the area throughout the season.

Our coach is Maria Montalvo and the team is based out of the farm she trains at, Dreamfield Farm, roughly 25 minutes from campus. The team has bimonthly meeting and hosts clinics, speakers and several educational opportunities for both dressage and event riders throughout the year.
