Garden Spot 5K Run/Walk

Held annually in beautiful downtown Franklin, Kentucky, this event attracts a sizable crowd for a day out filled with fun and awards!


The Garden Spot 5K Run/Walk, Presented by the Medical Center at Franklin Rehabilitation Services, has become a favorite for runners and walkers from across the southeast.  The primarily flat course carries participants through historic downtown Franklin and into beautiful partially shaded residential areas, finishing back at the old Simpson County Courthouse.  Awards in thirteen age categories are presented from the bandstand as participants as well as onlookers enjoy the shaded area provided by 100 year old maple trees.  Kids enjoy the Chaney’s Dairy Barn Moo Run on Friday night as six to ten year olds run the half mile course down College Street and back to the square.  After the Moo Run enjoy the Franklin-Simpson Renaissance Summer Nights Concerts.  It all adds up to a great weekend in Franklin, Kentucky.


The Chamber appreciates the support of The Medical Center at Franklin Rehabilitation Services, Chaney’s Dairy Barn and contributing sponsors; F-S Industrial Authority, Citizens First Bank, Franklin Bank and Trust Co., South Central Bank, The City of Franklin, Kentucky Downs, Simpson County Fiscal Court and Price Less IGA in conducting this race.
