Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon/ Marathon

For the first time, KRM is an Official Charity with the 2019 Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon/Marathon! As we celebrate the Derby season in Louisville, you can show your Kentucky spirit by supporting the KRM Running Team. Race day is Saturday, April 27, and there are many ways to get involved leading up to the big day!

cross the fundraising finish line

Each official charity has a fundraising goal, and you can help reach the $2,500 goal with KRM! Donate directly through the KRM Charity Page.

Donate Here

Please Note: At the bottom of the KRM Charity Page, there is an option to click ‘Donate Now.’ Once you arrive on that donation page, the gift you donate will count toward KRM’s goal. You do not need to enter anything into the ‘Search Fundraisers’ section. This ‘Search Fundraisers’ option is to search for an individual who has created a personal fundraising page for the race. If you have questions, please contact Marissa Mason by email or at (502) 479-9180 x 544.
