Local, to Kentucky, Races and Events
(If you have a race in the area, including surrounding states, let me know and I will post about it)
Running groups are a great way to get to know people but also a great way to help you progress and get out and run. If you are in the Elizabethtown KY area check out the Running Soles Group and if you are closer to Campbellsville check out the Campbellsville Running Club. There is now a running group starting over in Burkesville, for info check out their FB Page- Burkesville Running Club. Have another local running group in KY let me know and I will list it.
