Race to be part of The Biggest Loser RunWalk 5K, 15K, or the 1 Mile Kids Fun Run taking place in the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park on November 2, 2013!
Whether a first-time walker or an avid runner, Kentuckians are encouraged to get off the couch and hit the ground running for The Biggest Loser RunWalk, an event to support healthier lifestyles for Kentucky citizens! Dan and Jackie Evans, event organizers and season 5 contestants, will be encouraging participants as they exercise in this non-intimidating environment. After the race, participants, family and friends can celebrate and relax at the post-race concert featuring former “The Biggest Loser” contestant and Nashville recording artist, Dan Evans.
The 5K and 15K are both chip-timed for participants tracking personal goals. Special awards will be given to the top runners and walkers. 5K participants will have 1.5 hours and 15K participants will have 3.5 hours to complete the course. Those interested in participating as a team should consider The Biggest Loser RunWalk Team Challenge. Teams enjoy a discount on race registration and recruitment support, among other perks.
The kids will have their own run hosted by the Kids Fit Foundation. The 1 Mile Kids Fun Run will be at 11:30 am for ages 4-12. Kids Fit programs and events allow kids to reach their goals as well as celebrate their healthy lifestyle achievements with their family and friends. All children receive a t-shirt and finisher's medal. Please register your child prior to the race.
This event will be a part of the Alltech National Horse Show, America’s oldest and most prestigious indoor horse show, being held October 29 – November 3 at the park. All registered participants of the RunWalk will receive free entry into the show at packet pick up, as well as a Biggest Loser medal, t-shirt, and drawstring backpack.
On Friday, November 1, 2013, participants may be inspired during the Health and Wellness Meet and Greet from 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm, where participants may pick up their race information, take advantage of workshops from past Biggest Loser contestants, and take part in The Biggest Loser Q & A.
