A portion of the race proceeds will benefit the Heartland Church, specifically their benevolence fund. The Heartland Benevolence Fund will help to provide full Thanksgiving dinners for approximately 125 seniors in need in the Lexington area. If there is any money remaining after feeding all of the seniors in need in the community the funds will remain in the benevolence fund. The broader purpose of this fund is intended as a source of last resort, to be sought only when a family or individual requesting assistance from the Heartland Church has explored all other possibilities of help from family, friends, savings, investments, or any other resources. It is intended to be a temporary help during a time of crisis.

We LOVE dogs but unfortunately due to the size of this race we cannot allow dogs on course. However, dogs are 100% welcome to hang out at the start/finish line and give you tons of love once you cross the finish line!
Anyone who wants to start the race after the main group has begun the run is more than welcome to and your time will still be accurate.
Virtual racers will receive a long sleeve shirt or hoodie, race bib and finishers medal.
Anyone who plans to participate in the 5k, 10k and/or half marathon virtually will have until December 31 to enter their times online. If you do not wish to enter your time online that is ok as it is not required.
When registering please indicate whether you will pickup your packet in person or if you would like it mailed to you.
