About Bluegrass Runners

Bluegrass Runners is a non-profit organization based in Lexington, KY, devoted to promoting fitness, fellowship, and fun for runners of all ages and abilities. Every Thanksgiving, we put on the Thoroughbred Classic 5K. Through the almost 40 years of hosting this race, BGR has raised and donated over $450,000 to local charities. We are closing in on half a million $$!

Bluegrass Runners also hosts the Survive the Night Relays during the summer, featuring a relay marathon a relay, 140+ mile relay triathlon.

You can connect with other runners and walkers through our weekly club runs and social events. We also offer race registration discounts and prizes through our Grand Prix Series.

Members also receive discounts at Fleet Feet Lexington, Running Warehouse and many local races!
