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.

Check out these Race Companies for local races: Good Times Even Services & Central Kentucky Race Management.  For trail and Ultra races in Kentucky and Virginia check out Next Opportunity Events

A good race in Somerset KY, and for a good cause, is the Over My Head 5K June 6, 2020

Always a fun race, well races, is the Freeman Lake Summer Trail Challenge 5K and 10K on July 11th, 2010 - Run either race or both

Next Opportunity Events Hot Hot Hundred is August 8th and this year they have added a 50K

A great race to add to your list is the 8hr Backyard Classic in Elizabethtown, KY on August 15, 2020

The Lake Cumberland 1/2 Marathon is Sept 12th in Somerset KY

If you want to check out a great trail but do not want to do an ultra try the Rugged Red Half Marathon in the Red River Gorge, KY on Sept 26, 2020 - Register here

Looking for other races around the world, here is where I get most of the ones I list: ahotuMarathons (covers the world), American Trail Running Assoc.  (Mostly US but does have other races on the list),  Running  in the USA & Trail Runner Magazine

Races this Coming Week - Keeping in mind many races have been getting canceled
For now will only post on races after they take place - if they take place - until this craziness passes as most race are canceled or will be - If I find one I am sure that will be run I will list it.

I shared this in my Training Overview and is directed at cycling but some good info on whether working out makes one more susceptible to viruses
