Run with a Mission 5K returns to Nazareth May 20

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are again hosting the Run with a Mission Nazareth 5K. This year's race will take place at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 20, 2023, on the beautiful Nazareth Motherhouse Campus. Participants can walk or run in person or choose to participate virtually.

The Run with a Mission Nazareth 5K began in 2019 as an opportunity to promote community connections while raising money for a good cause. While COVID-19 restrictions interfered with events in 2020 and 2021, the 5K returned full force in 2022, welcoming a large crowd.

The 5K welcomes participants of all ages to walk or run the designated course around the exquisite and picturesque Nazareth grounds at 40 West Drive, Nazareth, Kentucky, off Louisville Road, near Bardstown. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth's mission in Northeast India.

This project in India aims to offer vocational training in the computer and food industries, with the goal of generating employment opportunities and enhancing the lives of individuals who have not finished high school.

The race will begin at 8 a.m., and awards will be presented to the top male and female overall finishers and top age category finishers. Registration for the event is $30. A link to register for the 5K can be found on the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth’s website, or at
