5K Race to Cure Sarcoma

  • 1100 Trevilian Way Louisville, KY, 40213 United States (map)

Register here.

The inaugural Race to Cure Sarcoma, Louisville began as a dream of a small group of sarcoma survivors from our community. Thanks to an extraordinarily talented group of our many friends and families, the race has become a reality. 

Now put on your running/walking shoes and enjoy an early morning with the animals at the Louisville Zoo as we raise awareness and financial resources for sarcoma research!  

Your Executive Race Committee: 
Mary Jane Ruf, Megan Nelson, Gina Bottom and Melissa Draut  

5K Run, Family Fun Walk and Silent Auction too!

  • Please Note: Due to time constraints, the 5K is for runners and fast walkers. Others are welcome to participate in the 1-mile Family Fun Walk portion of the event. All participants will have 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete the course.

  • Not a runner or walker? No problem! You can join us at the Zoo on race morning by registering as a RTCS Supporter.
