Elvis Presley 5K

30 06 2014



**The Elvis Presley 5K was recently featured in The Runner’s Bucket List: 200 Races to Run Before you Die**

One of our favorite local races is coming up on August 16– the Elvis Presley 5K! This race starts and ends at Graceland and winds through the surrounding neighborhoods. The course is flat with a few turns–great to try to get that PR! Plus the after-party is tons of fun, and it all benefits a great organization–Livitup, Inc. Just a few highlights include:

Limited edition finishing medal for the first 2,000 finishers!

Cash prizes for the best dressed Elvis and Priscilla (hint: Elvis Week Theme is 1968 Comeback Special) 

RUNNERS – A rare start AND finish chip time!

After party with door prizes, trophies, snacks, beer and plenty of Elvis music!

If you’re lucky enough, you may even see Eric dressed as Elvis! To register, click here or visit the race website here. See you at the start line!

Could you tell me whats the course record for 70+ male since the race began?

Although we have been running the Elvis run for many years and were involved as sponsors of the race recently, we do not have those records. The Memphis Runners Track Club may have kept up with the results and may be a good resource. You might also contact the current race director, Kelly Burrow. Her email address is kburrow@liveitupinc.org.
