Toby K Walk / Run with Purpose 5k

Toby K 5K logo

We're back in 2021 with the Toby K 5k! Thank you to everyone that supported #teamkirkland in 2020. His legacy and race continues!

Toby Kirkland was a great man in our community and one who has been involved in Run Hard from day one, initially as a volunteer and ultimately as a board member. Tragically, he passed away unexpectedly on March 19th, 2020. Toby loved people and dedicated his life to making other people better by constantly challenging them to live, work and serve with PURPOSE…as well as fixing their computers. Toby saw potential in people and did all he could to push them to be their best and knew you couldn't do that with a broken computer. If you knew Toby then you can say you are better because of it...and your computer was too.

As you train and prepare for the event use the hashtag #teamkirkland so we can encourage the Kirkland family by continuing and expanding this mission that Toby loved so much!

Bring the family and have fun in this 3.1 mile route! Our course will have the same start/finish as the half marathon (just not as many miles in between). So, join us and support Lexington and the Run Hard Running Teams! Our course is fully certified from the USATF.
