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 fourteen 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 kids under ten years old run the half mile course down College Street and back to the square.  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; Citizens First Bank, The City of Franklin, Franklin Bank and Trust Co., Franklin Favorite, Franklin Precision Industry, F-S Industrial Authority, Harman, Kentucky Downs, Legacy Group Properties, Price Less IGA, Simpson County Fiscal Court, South Central Bank and Wilkins Eye Care in conducting this race.
