Can I pickup my packet day of?

Yes at The Kentucky Theatre (214 E Main St, Lexington, KY 40507) from 7:am-8:30am the day of the race

Can I walk, bring my stroller, bring my dog, etc?

Yes! The beauty and intention behind this race and it being a 3K is so that it can be as accessible as possible, we would love to see all the kiddos, doggos, and puppers we can! Just please make sure to bring poo bags, as we want to be respectful of downtown, the course, and other Shufflers 😊

Will there be bathrooms? 

Yes at the Kentucky Theatre before the race, and after there will be porta potties at the Irish Festival and Parade, directly following the Shuffle.

Will there be water on the course?

No, as this is such a short course, we will not have water on the course. Please bring your own bottle if you choose to do so. 

Will there be any vendors open?

Yes! Tom’s Travelin’ Coffee will be open before the race, there will be a donut truck, and West Sixth Brewing will have a booth open after the race so you can start celebrating early 😉

What if there is rain?

The race will be ran rain or shine, with lighting delays as needed. Right now, the weather is looking great though! Partly cloudy with a high of 61 and low of 45! 

How can I share photos from the event? 

Tag us on socials using #ShuffleForShelter

Where can I park? 

Parking can be difficult, as it always is downtown. There are various paid lots, and street parking around the route, a good resource is or 

*Note- Main Street, Upper, and Short Street will all be closed at 6am, so plan your route accordingly.

How does chip timing work? 

Each bib has a chip attached that tracks when you as an individual cross the start and finish line. So if you start at the back of the pack, and it takes you 30 seconds to cross the official start line, your time is not affected. Each runner has a chip that counts towards their own time. So no need to make sure you get a spot at the front to get a better time. 

What is the time I must be finished by? 

All runners will be required to be off the streets at 10am, if you do not finish the race by 9:45am, we cannot guarantee you will have a completed time. If you think you will need any special assistance or needs, please contact

How do I get extra t-shirts or medals? 

Extra shirts and medals are available for purchase on the website store:

*Note- Items bought after packet pickup, or the Race, must be picked up at our office (700 E Loudon Ave, Lexington KY, 40505) during office hours, following the race. 

Can I register day-of?

While you can on the website, we ask that you would consider registering beforehand, to allow for us to know numbers earlier and allow for day-of packet pickup to go smoother.
