DV8K Life Changing Run

Saturday August 21st, 2021

Lexington, KY

Official Website



Some run for fun.  Some run for health.  Now, run to change a life.

Help DV8 Kitchen Vocational Foundation build a bakery that changes lives.


Join us for the 3rd Annual DV8K Life Changing Run on Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 7:30am at Keeneland Race Course.

Our race will feature our signature 8K (4.97 miles), a 4K (2.5 miles) run/walk, and Kids' 1K Dash.  The races will cover much of the scenic Keeneland grounds.  Run or walk the 4K with strollers welcomed.  The 8K is a double loop course and only for runners who can maintain a 15 minute/mile pace.

We also have a Virtual Runner/Walker category for those who want to support our race and cause but who cannot join us in person.  Register as a virtual runner/walker, and we'll mail your race packet (Bib & Race Shirt), and you can run/walk your own DV8K or 4K on your own timeline anywhere in the world.

The 2021 Dv8k Run will raise money to help build a 2nd Life Changing Bakery to further Dv8's mission of employing people in early stages of addiction recovery.   Our 2020 race got cancelled due to COVID-19, so we want to make this one really BIG and special.

Form a Life-Changing Team of 5 or more runners/walkers, and you can all SAVE $3 on your individual registrations.  Teams can be as large as you want.

It's simple to CREATE A TEAM when you register. Give yourself a TEAM NAME (The funner the better!) and invite your friends, family, running buddies, or co-workers to join your team. When they register (after you), they will be able to select your team from a list of existing teams.  For the team pricing, the first 4 members of a team will pay full price. The 5th person joining and anyone joining the team thereafter will pay the current registration fee less $3.00. When the 5th person joins to fully consummate a 5 person team, the first 4 registrants will each be refunded $3.00 on their credit card. Team members can be participating in any of our four events, the 8K, 4K, 1K Kids' Dash, or Virtual Runner/Walker. If you want to create a password to be shared and used when your team members join the team, that is allowed but not required.  There will be no formal competition between the teams other than our recognizing the largest team, but this gives you a way to save and get your friends & family involved in this fun race.

Don't go it alone--FORM A LIFE CHANGING TEAM and save!
