2017 CHARITY DETAILS - This year's race will benefit the Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children and Youth (KyUMH). For over 145 years, KyUMH has served young people and now offers care to children with histories of abuse, neglect, and/or family trauma. In 2016 alone, KyUMH changed the lives of more than 800 Kentucky children through residential, community based and substance recovery services. KyUMH is currently in the process of building a new campus that will allow them to invest in new programs to serve even more of the 7,000 children who are removed from their homes each year due to imminent danger. The new campus will feature state-of-the-art residential facilities and opportunities to collaborate with one of the best alternative education systems in the state.


RACE DETAILS - The Run for the Children 5K features the same course as last year - runners and walkers will pass scenic farmland on an out and back course during a unique early evening run. The course starts and ends at the iconic Chaney’s Dairy Barn. It is fully paved and relatively flat, with a few gently sloping areas. All pre-registered participants receive a free race t-shirt (race day participants receive a t-shirt as supplies last) and all participants get to enjoy a scoop of homemade ice cream after the race, courtesy of Chaney’s.
