Race to the Finish 5K

Start planning to run the 2nd annual "Race to the Finish 5K". Come enjoy our NEW unique 5K(ish) race course right in the heart of Lexington. Just like last year, half of the course is on the road, and half is on trails, but this year some of trails will require you to navigate a stream or two. Due to construction of our sports facilities we have changed the course to be a little more challenging, but it is still run entirely on the Northside Baptist Church property. No cars to dodge, no intersections to run through. Since this course will be "unique" you should register with a friend or two to experience the course together.

After the 5K we will have a Kids Marathon. This allows children to complete the marathon distance by running 25 miles on their on over a few weeks before September 16th and then finish the final 1.2 miles on our campus while we cheer them on. Or kids can choose to run a 1 Mile Fun Run. Both the Kids Marathon and Fun Run will be run entirely on paved roads. Please only register for the marathon if you will be completing 25 miles on your own prior to September 16th. Otherwise, please register for the 1 mile run.

Not sure what to do with the non running kids in your family? Well, we will have inflatables for them to play on, before, during and after the races.

This race is to raise funds for our Missions Ministry that spreads the word of Christ around the world.

Feel free to run or walk this course, but bring a change of shoes to wear home. You will get a little wet.

This course is sure to bring a smile to your face as you will run past many inspiring signs.

Hope to see you on September 16th.
