We know you love to walk and run, and we do too! But after careful consideration, our team at the Louisville Sports Commission decided to cancel this year’s Louisville pure tap® 5K and Norton Sports Health 10K based on three factors. First, the events had not yet been approved by Kentucky state government. Second, registration numbers were less than 150 for the two races combined. And third, even with state government approval, we do not believe there would have been sufficient time to increase registrations to a level that makes these events financially feasible.
Since the goal of these two events is to encourage active lifestyles, we are excited to share that we are working with our two race sponsors – Louisville Water Company and Norton Sports Health – on a health equity initiative focused on youth in Louisville’s underserved areas. This outreach initiative is expected to take place this fall. Look for more details in the next few weeks.
