Members of the local chapter of the Brothers Keepers Motorcycle Club will hosts its two-day “Burn Run” in Prestonsburg this weekend.

The event is scheduled to be held from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, July 26, and from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, July 27 at Archer Park.

The BKMC Chapter 28, made up of active and retired firefighters from Floyd, Pike, Johnson and surrounding counties, hosts the Burn Run annually as a fundraiser for “Camp Ytiliba,” which is hosted by Shriners Hospitals for Children for kids who have overcome severe burns.

Activities include live music, vendors, biker games, inflatables, a car show, dunking booths, live animals from Raven Rock Wolf Dogs, a cornhole tournament and other activities. Participants do not need to have motorcycles to participate. 

The event will start at 4 p.m. on Friday, July 27, with vendors open and live music. Biker games will also be held at Archer Park that evening. 

On Saturday, July 27, activities will also include a show from Bluegrass Championship Wrestling. Tickets are $7 and the wrestling will begin at 7 p.m. 

Admission is free, but wristbands for the inflatables are $5 on Friday evening and $8 on Saturday. 

For the first time this year, a 5K Run and Walk will be held at 8 a.m. on Saturday in the Prestonsburg municipal parking lot across from Kickin’ Ash. Registration will begin at 7 a.m. for the race. The annual BKMC Dice Run will also be held on Saturday, with registration starting at 9 a.m. at the park. 

All revenue will be donated to the Shriner camp. For details, visit BKMC Paintsville Ky. 28 on Facebook.
