Thoroughbred horses won’t be the only ones running on the day of the Kentucky Derby. Ironstone Farm in Andover is the Ironstone Derby on May 2 as a fundraiser.
The Ironstone Derby will be a 5K run/walk through Lowell, beginning and ending at LeLacheur Park, the home of the Lowell Spinners baseball team. People raising money for Ironstone will be able to enjoy a barbecue feast, play games and watch the Kentucky Derby on the giant center-field video screen.
The 5K race is on a timed, USATF certified course.
