As they did last season, the Kentucky women’s basketball team and its coaches will host an annual 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, June 19. Last season’s 5K for 5K was an event to push the Cats’ season ticket sales to more than 5,000, which they accomplished.
In a release through UK, Coach Matthew Mitchell said he hoped future participants had been training because he plans on winning the race this year. Registration is $20 and that fee will be applied to 2010-11 season tickets for season ticket holders. Info on how to buy tickets for next season has not yet been announced.
You can register online at www.ukathletics.com by clicking on the “5K Central” button on the right side. Registration forms also can be picked up at the ticket off at the Joe Craft Center.
