Run (or Walk) in the St. Matthews 5K July 27
Go to the annual 5K Run/Walk in St. Matthews. This event benefits Kosair Charities, and you get to go to a pizza party after you cross the finish line. If that’s not a good reason to complete a 5K, what is?
St. Matthews 5K
The St. Matthews 5K begins and ends at St. Paul’s parking lot at 4000 Shelbyville Road. Meet up with the group and enjoy the race. This is a Run/Walk, so you’re free to go at your own pace. Your registration of $35 covers the entry fee into the 5K, a race T-shirt and the cookout at Saints.
Because once you make it to the end of the 5K, you’re invited to the cookout at Saints Pizza and Pub. Everything starts at 8 pm, but you might want to get to the area early. There’s always something to do in St. Matthews, and the parking lot is just a few blocks away from pretty Norbourne Estates. Before you go running or walking, go for a relaxing drive around this neighborhood.
