United Way 5K and Fitness Walk

Since 1994, United Way 5K Run and Fitness Walk has been a part of Paducah’s BBQ on the River. More than 500 runners and walkers come from across the U.S. to participate in the race where we utilize a chip timing system to produce accurate results. This is a wonderful event that promotes health, fitness and a fun time for everyone; serious runners, kids, corporate teams, running clubs, entire families, or community groups can join in. Since 2001, the race has also offered a 1-mile Youth Run to children ages 12 and under. Day of Race Registration will open at 7:30am and close at 8:30am. The 5K race will begin at 9am and the one mile youth run will take place following the 5K. 

Pre-registration for the 5K is $25. Day of Race Registration for the 5K is $35.

Pre-register an adult for the 5K and you can pre-register a child (12 or under) for the one mile youth run for free! Please note this applies to pre-registration only. You cannot redeem a free child registration the day of the event.

Pre-registration for a child for the one mile youth run is $10. Day of Race Registration for the one mile youth run is $15.
