Presented by Whitaker Bank


The Black Cat Chase 5K, sponsored by Whitaker Bank, will be held on Friday, October 28 at 7pm, and is one of the region's most popular and entertaining races. This traditional race is filled with fun and excitement, from both the race participants and spectators! With the Halloween themed festivities, such as costumes, Halloween music and more; this is a great event for the entire family. Whether you choose to participate by yourself, with a friend or spouse, school or work group, or with the whole family, the Black Cat Chase 5K will be sure to deliver high quality entertainment for everyone involved.  Also, the start/finish of the race will once again be held in Downtown Frankfort in front of the Old Capitol lawn!

Proceeds from the Black Cat Chase benefit the YMCA's Annual Giving Campaign, which generates funds to help support our local children and families in financial need in order to participate in YMCA programs and memberships.  The YMCA is a non-profit charitable organization.  Donations are also accepted as part of the registration process and are greatly appreciated in our efforts to serve the Frankfort community!



You may upload your 5K (3.1 miles) time anytime between Sunday, October 23 and Friday, October 28, 2022.
