Horse Capital Marathon

The race will start at 7:30am from the Kentucky Horse Park Campground Area.  A short section (beginning and end of the race) will be on the Legacy Trail with 98% being in scenic Central Kentucky country roads passing by 50+ Central Kentucky horse farms.

This race will be staged in Lexington, Kentucky, commonly referred to as the Horse Capital of the World.  Our Marathon/Half Marathon will begin together at 7:30am and will have a 6 hour maximum duration (per our city permit).  This means that those competing in the marathon must keep a 14 minute 30 second pace or better to complete the race in time.
