Runners and walkers are invited to compete in a unique series of 5K runs/fun walks featured at five western Kentucky State Parks.

Participate in challenging courses with various terrains. We encourage everyone to participate in the entire series, but you can enter each individually if you prefer. Runners who participate in the entire series earn points and are eligible for the overall championship and special giveaways. If running is not your thing, then join in our 5K “Get Fit” Fun Walk. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Bring your whole family for a weekend getaway and enjoy our beautiful state parks!

The Western Kentucky Race Series begins August 10, 2013 at Kenlake State Resort Park in Hardin, and then continues to Pennyrile Forest, Lake Barkley, Kentucky Dam Village and finally John James Audubon.
