The Hundred Acre 5K


Join us on June 23rd for the first race to be held at the beautiful Arboretum, State Botanical Garden of Kentucky in the heart of Lexington (yes…THEArboretum!). John’s Run/Walk Shop and the Arboretum have teamed up to bring you The Hundred Acre 5k- a fun new race to let you experience your favorite place to run or walk in a whole new way!
Bring your little ones and stick around after the race for the children’s fun-run (ages 2-10). All participants will receive a Hundred Acre 5k race T-shirt and Arboretum-themed finisher award. All children participating in the fun run will receive a free day admission to the Kentucky’s Children Garden and a ribbon.
Proceeds from the race benefit the continued improvement of the Kentucky Children’s Garden. The Kentucky Children’s Garden is a safe, two acre outdoor learning environment designed to help children 2 to 10 years old discover plants and the environment. In the garden, children can explore an integrated combination of various “child-scaled” theme gardens and garden-like elements for experiential play.
