In 2016, a volunteer (Matt) from Elevate Recreation, a non-profit organization serving the 4th and 5th grade students of Louisville, sought to raise $50K by running a 50K across Louisville connecting many Elevate partner schools. In 2017, Elevate founder Logan along with Matt and Josh (Run The Ville Head Coach) committed to cross Louisville again connecting partner schools. 2018 was the first year we opened the Elevate 50K to the public as well as adding a 5K for those uncomfortable with tackling the 50K distance. In addition to the 50K and 5K we elected to add a Kid’s Mile around Shelby Park for the younger runners.

This charity run is raising awareness and funding for the mission and vision of Elevate Recreation. Elevates mission is to elevate body, mind, and spirit through mentoring, recreational events, training, camps and retreats.

Elevate 50K/5K/Kid’s Mile routes

The 50K is an open road course crossing Louisville from Zachary Taylor Elementary to Atkinson Elementary and finishing at Shelby Park. Participants will have the opportunity to run many differing and unique areas of Louisville throughout the course. Every year we have had amazing love and support from the neighborhoods we are passing through. Many neighbors ask about the race and encourage runners to keep pushing on toward the finish. Participates do need to be aware of traffic throughout the event. The Elevate 5K & Kid's Mile run/walk will start and finish at Shelby Park.

5K and Kid’s Mile will be at Amped near Shelby Park 600 E Oak St, Louisville, KY 40203.

Many of the partner Elementary schools will be operating as aid stations along the route. You are welcome to have a crew keeping an eye on you, please direct them to the school/schools of choice to keep the roadways clear of any vehicles inhibiting traffic flow. Please inform them they are not allowed to drive alongside you. The course is on open roadways and at no time should vehicles be following or driving alongside the participant. This puts other drivers and the participants in danger. Obviously, but for the sake of stating it, crews can't transport you anywhere while you are in the race.

Runners are responsible for their personal aid outside of offers (such as water) at aid stations. Some aid stations will have bananas and other options. A detailed course map and aid stations will be provided closer to the race date.
Volunteers are the life line of the Elevate 50K. If you would like to volunteer to help we can use you! Let us know!
