Description

The inaugural Spindletop Stache & Sweater Dash 5K will be held on Saturday, November 29th at 9am at Spindletop Hall in North Lexington.  Bring your "Movember" growth or paste on mustache and your ugliest holiday sweater to compete for fun awards and the FUNNEST run/party of the holiday season.  This will be the FUNNEST race of the winter season!

Our race will benefit the Univeristy of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center specifically helping patients and families battling lung cancer.  The inspiration for this race is Dr. Jules Heilser.  At the end of April this year Jules Heisler was diagnosed with lung cancer. This was a shock to both he and his family. Dr. Heisler had never smoked and had been an avid runner. As ironic as it is, he spent his entire career working for in the cancer field. In 1975 he was hired to work for Nixon's War on Cancer, this was the start to an almost 40 year career in the cancer field. During his career he worked a UK and earned his PhD from UK. His youngest daughter Stacey Williams felt that she had to do something. After researching and find that there were no lung cancer events in Kentucky, Stacey decided that she would start a 5K for lung cancer. 

Chip timing, Overall and AG awards, long sleeved performance shirts, DJ Stitz, West Sixth beer (for those of legal age), Best Stache and Ugliest Sweater awards, face painting and more!

We will also have a Little Stache Kids Run (.75 miles) and have a Virtual Runner category for those wishing to support the race/cause who can't make the event at Spindletop.  Virtual Runners will need to register by November 17th and we'll mail your race shirt to you so you can run/walk your own 5K on November 29th.
