11/16/20 – DERBY FESTIVAL GETS IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT WITH NEW VIRTUAL 5K

November 16, 2020. Louisville, KY. – Logging a lot of miles while holiday shopping? Make all those steps count with the Kentucky Derby Festival’s new virtual 5K sponsored by Oxmoor Center. The Tinsel Trot allows participants to track their miles over multiple days at their own pace. Registration is open now through December 7th at KDF.org.

“The Tinsel Trot is an easy way to stay active this holiday season and it’s something you can do with your whole family,” said Matt Gibson, Kentucky Derby Festival President and CEO. “We hope our first-ever virtual 5k shares some of the Derby Festival spirit we’ve been missing all year.”

Registration for the Virtual 5K is $45. Registrants can choose to receive either an official Tinsel Trot hoodie and facemask OR a Kentucky Derby Festival themed Christopher Radko Ornament. Participants have until December 15th to complete their 5K.

As a sponsor of the 5K, the Oxmoor Center invites participants to multi-task by logging miles while shopping. Just walking 5 1/2 laps inside Oxmoor adds up to a 5K, so registrants can complete all 3.1 miles while checking items off their holiday to-do list.

Oxmoor is also setting up a photo-finish line for the perfect selfie. Those participating inside Oxmoor will be required to follow their safety guidelines: https://www.oxmoorcenter.com/en/visit/covid-19-update.html.
