Keeneland Race Course
Half-Marathoners traverse 2.2 miles along Kentucky's historic Old Frankfort Pike, ranked by Trails.com as "one of the ten best scenic drives in the United States." Rich with history, heritage, (yes, rolling hills!), scenic views and the birthplace of American Thoroughbred Racing, Old Frankfort Pike is one of the prettiest stretches of land in the world.
Runners will start the out-and-back course for the race within nearly a stone’s throw of the Keeneland Race Course, just off Versailles Boulevard.
From there, they’ll head out onto a clockwise loop route that takes them into the rural countryside just to the west of Lexington, running along a series of rolling hills and country roads, passing by thoroughbred farms such as Middlebrook Farm and Donamire Farm along the way before heading back to the start/finish area.
The race location may be familiar to anyone who has seen the 2003 film "Seabiscuit", as several scenes for the movie were shot on the Keeneland horse racing track, thanks largely to the fact that it has been maintained with the same classic architectural style and feel for decades.
