Event Details

The MentorKids 5K is not only a fun run, but also a chance to give back to your community by supporting the work of MentorKids KY! 

This year we will have both a competitive 5K (chip-timed) and a Family Fun Run/Walk.

Registration is $10 for either the 5K and family course and each participant will recieve a t-shirt and  complimentary breakfast after the race.

For families of 4 or more please use a 25% off promo code: JAMES127 (Not for groups).

The 5K course will be the same as our 2012 5K. Runners will begin at the Owensboro Christian Church Recreation Center, take a left on Veach Road, do one lap around Legion Park, take Byers to Burlew, then a left on the access road prior to New Hartford Road, and finally, one lap around the church, finishing back at the Recreation Center.

For your convienence, a water station and police escort will be provided throughout the 5K.

The Family Fun Run/Walk course will follow the 5K though Legion Park but take Veach Rd back to Owensboro Christian Church to complete a course slightly over a mile long. Throughout Legion Park, racers will encounter obstacles, play games, and complete activities designed to create an interactive, exciting experience for the whole family.
