Lace Up! The Gentlemen Stakes 5k is Coming Back in September

February 22, 2019

Get your track shoes out, literally. The sounds of thawing ice and bird song mark the start of race-training season — specifically our Gentlemen Stakes 5k at Belterra Park Cincinnati’s racetrack. No horsing around!

This year’s prostate cancer run and walk, on Saturday, September 14, 2019, is our 12th prostate cancer run to benefit ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer. Over the years, we’ve covered a lot of ground in encouraging men to get regular screenings for the disease. In 2019, nearly 175,000 men are expected to be diagnosed with prostate cancer, but when caught early the prognosis is excellent: the five-year survival rate is 99%.

Awareness and preventative measures such as annual PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood tests help ensure more cases are caught in the very early stages.

The Gentlemen Stakes 5k will kick off at the Belterra Park racetrack and wind through the sights of Riverbend Music Center and Coney Island before crossing the finish line back at the track. Highlights of race day will include:

  • A pre-race Survivors’ Breakfast to support men who have overcome or are battling prostate cancer.
  • A Kids Superhero Dash, so you may want to turn your race training into a family affair.
  • Post-race refreshments, food, raffle baskets, music, beer and more!
  • Fun at Belterra Park, including actual horse races, following the Gentlemen Stakes.

In 2018, more than 800 runners and walkers gathered at Belterra to tackle the 24-furlong course, with a total crowd of over 1,000 to run, walk and cheer. With their help, we raised more than $115,000 for ZERO, the national nonprofit dedicated to ending prostate cancer.

In our quest to beat prostate cancer, we want to beat those numbers. Join us to attract at least 1,000 runners and walkers so we can meet our goal and raise $125,000. 

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men, following skin cancer, and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer. You or a loved one may become among those affected. However, together we can raise awareness to catch it early, cure it and get back on track to the lives we love.

 

We hope to see you on September 14!
