The race is named in honor of Dr. Edgar Morgan. Dr. Morgan was a dedicated Kiwanis member and long-time advocate for the Louisville running community.

The Kiwanis Club of Louisville is a snapshot of the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro community. We have members from all walks of life and at every step of the career ladder. However we are unified in our belief that our community, our children and our own professional life will benefit from developing relationships with other local leaders.
