YMCA Festival 5k kicks off Oldham County Day

The county’s largest festival, Oldham County Day, kicks off Friday evening with a unique night race through downtown La Grange.

Runners and walkers will pass by a “dancing in the streets” party with live music as they near the finish line — but they’ll have to resist the tempting smells of corn dogs and funnel cakes, too!

The race start and finish are located at Covenant United Methodist Church in La Grange. The course goes down Allen Lane to Commerce Parkway, then up First Street and turns onto Main Street and finishes on Kentucky Avenue.

Check out the July 19 edition of The Oldham Era for tips on racing in the evening.

Online registration for the YMCA Festival 5k is currently closed, but race day registration is available at CUMC beginning at 6 p.m. Come join us!
