Race Day Registration

Registration opens at 7:30 AM, 9:00 AM start time.  Registration ends 10 minutes before start time. We will have paper registration forms, if necessary, but the easiest and quickest way to register is online.  Registration can easily be done on your phone on race day.  

 

Packet Pickup

Packet pickup is on the morning of race day beginning at 7:30 AM.  Tee shirts, bibs and goodie bags will be waiting for you at the registration table.  We are also planning for pre-race packet pickup this year.  Stay tuned for details!

 

Coffee and Doughnuts

Nothing goes better with the crisp clean air of a bluegrass Kentucky spring morning than a cup of coffee and a doughnut, or banana if you prefer.  

 

Join a Team and Save

At registration time you will have the opportunity to join a Vision Team with your friends and fellow runners or create your own Vision Team and invite your friends to join. 
You can easily create a team when you register, give it a fun name, then invite your friends, family, co-workers, etc. to join your team.  Teams can be as large as you want.  To help you recruit members for your team, all teams of 5 or more members, will save $3.00 off their registration!
How team discount pricing works:
When people register for your team, the first 4 members of the team (including you) will pay the current full registration price.  The 5th person, and every subsequent person who joins the team will pay the current registration fee less $3.00.  After that 5th person joins the team, to complete the 5-person team discount minimum, the first 4 members of the team will each be refunded $3.00 on their credit card!

Door Prizes

The Lions Run for Sight is known for our door prizes.  We hope to have 100 special prizes for our 37th anniversary run.
