Owensboro residents come out to 'trot' around Towne Square Mall

Posted: Updated:
OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

The fifth annual Derby Trot 5K Run-Walk is taking place in Owensboro this weekend, but this race is a little different than most others.

Everything takes place at Towne Square Mall.

It's going to be dark when the race begins, because it's actually a late-night event.

The Derby Trot's going to be held in and around the Towne Square Mall parking lot tonight at 11 p.m. 

It's a flat course with wide lanes.

Even though it's technically a race, it's a fun run and walk that happens every spring on the Friday night before the Kentucky Derby.

If you'd still like to participate, you can register inside the mall from 10-10:45 p.m. for $25.

Awards will be given in several categories for different age groups.

Door prizes and snacks will also be available inside the mall at midnight when the race ends.

All proceeds from the Derby Trot benefit New Beginnings Sexual Assault Support Services' programs for child and adult abuse survivors.

Those programs are free of charge for abuse victims.
