This is a list of 5k's I have found in the West Kentucky Area ( Primarily Graves, Marshall, Mccracken and Calloway County). This is probably not every single race, so if I find more, I will add them to the list. If you are hosting a 5k or any other type of race, let me know and I will add it to the list. I found most of the races at runningintheusa.com, active.com and facebook. Hope this helps! One of the best ways to motivate yourself to run is to just sign up and register for a race! You wont believe how much more motivated it can make you, just knowing you have something to run for.
