Approximately one mile long, starting and finishing outside our Race Expo!

Families who run together... sweat together!

Children ages 5-12 can join mom and dad in celebrating spring's arrival in Kentucky with their very own RunTheBluegrass T-Shirts and Finisher Medals! Our 2017 Kids Races will be Friday, March 31, at 7:00pm, just outside the doors of our Race Expo at Keeneland.

One-Milers receive their very own RunTheBluegrass t-shirts and Finisher Medals, plus food and drinks at their Finish Line.

Our Kid Half-Marathoners receive all of the above, except larger Finisher Medals because they've logged twelve training miles (or more) beforehand! It's our way of encouraging little ones to enjoy running with mom and dad!

Kid's Half Marathon allows participants to run 12 (or more!) miles on their own prior to race day, and finish their 13th and final mile with everyone at Keeneland on March 31st. Print a copy of the Kids Half Marathon Training Tracker here!

2017's Kids Race Presenting Sponsor, Modern Kids Dentistry, is a huge believer in art's ability to awaken children's minds, talents and imaginations. Modern Kids Dentistry hosts a Children's Art Gallery inside their own Lexington offices, every year!

And now, Modern Kids Dentistry is inviting all of our RTB children and families across the country to join our first Kids Art Contest!

Children 12 and under (who have registered for either of our 2017 Kids Races) are invited to draw, paint and/or color their own favorite outdoor place - anywhere in the world - and submit their entries for us to display online, then we will also display their talents at our Kids Art Gallery at our 2017 Race Expo in March!

Families, you will be invited into MKD's Kids Art Gallery at Expo for photo ops with your children next to their creations, we'll also have an art jury awarding Gold, Silver and Bronze stickers to each entry, plus the top winners in each Age Group will win fun prizes!
