Presenting the 2024 GenesisHR Battlegreen Run

This annual tradition is celebrated by the local community for both the spirit of the event and the incredible fundraising achieved by participants for local nonprofits.

We will run as a community on Sunday, November 3rd @ 12:15 PM to raise money for a number of deserving nonprofits.  Choose from a 5K walk, 5K run or (almost)10K run….OK it’s only 9.857k…we just want to start and end in the same place. If you prefer to maintain social distancing or just can’t make it to Lexington on race day you can participate virtually.


We need volunteers to guide runners through their route, work at water stations and serve food to participants. Volunteering qualifies for school volunteer service credit (4 hours) and you will receive a free race volunteer t-shirt!

To volunteer, contact Robert Burbidge at

Battlegreen Foundation Board members present Rene Rancourt a token of their appreciation for being the voice of the GenesisHR Battlegreen run for 26 years.
