Event Details

The Run The Ridge 5K, 10K, and 25K Trail Run is a culturally and historically significant event as runners will be traveling some of the same dirt roads and beautiful overlooks that Father of Bluegrass Music, Bill Monroe, and his beloved Uncle Pen did. This will be a fun but challenging event with steep inclines and declines to navigate going up to the top of the Ridge and coming back down. The scenic course winds “high in the hills of ‘ol Kentucky,” as Monroe put it. The race will start and finish at the celebrated Bill Monroe Homeplace and will feature plenty of great bluegrass music and a few surprises along the trail. Register by September 27, 2024, and receive a special race t-shirt.


5K is $25

10K is $35

25K is $55

(*** There is a four hours and 30 minutes cutoff)


All finishers will receive a special finishers medal to celebrate their accomplishment.

Awards will also be given to the Top 3 Male & Female Finishers in both the 5K, 10K and, 25K Distances.
