Inaugural Hoptown Half Marathon & 5K

The Inaugural Hoptown Half Marathon & 5K, presented by Planters Bank (Half Marathon) and Jennie Stuart Health (5K), is a joint road race through Hopkinsville, KY.

The course winds through downtown Hoptown, residential areas, through beautiful Christian County countryside and returns to finish downtown on the popular and new Greenway/Rail Trail.

Couple this great race layout with Saturday’s Hoptown Harvest Fest and Bourbon celebrations (also held downtown) and you’ll have a fabulous race experience! Proceeds from the race and associated events (Friday Expo) benefit the non-profit partners of the United Way of the Pennyrile.

Half-marathon runner package includes a beautiful medal and comfortable long sleeve moisture-wicking performance shirt. Come experience the beauty and charm of west Kentucky scenery and hospitality in Hopkinsville, or Hoptown as we call it — at the Hoptown Half Marathon & 5K, presented by Planters Bank and Jennie Stuart Health.

Race starting line is at 1001 S. Main Street in downtown Hopkinsville. Race-day registration and packet pickup is at the nearby Christian County Justice Center, 100 Justice Way, Hopkinsville, KY 42240.

DATE CHANGE: End of Year Run for Beer!

The date for the End of Year Run for Beer! has changed to January 5th, 2019.

Let us guess: your New Year’s Resolution this year was to get in shape. 2019’s New Year’s Resolution will be the same, right?

WE CAN HELP.

Come out and run your fastest half-mile. For the ten fastest runners (five men and five women), that’s the price you’ll pay for your pints – until your fellow runners knock you off the board.

(21 and up run for beer, 20 and under run for free soft drinks. :) )
