KFC Yum Center
Evan Williams Bourbon Experience
One of the first parks designed by Frederick Law Olmstead — whose masterworks include the designs for both Prospect Park and Central Park in New York City — Cherokee Park features large open green spaces and rolling meadows that runners will make their way through as they turn off the Scenic Loop near the park’s southern edge and head onto Cherokee Park Road, which takes them out of the park near its northeastern corner.
The half marathon starts at the corner of Main and 2nd Streets, next to the KFC Yum Center where the University of Louisville’s basketball teams play.
From there, the course first heads south and east along Muhammad Ali Boulevard. After turns on Chestnut Street and Lexington Road, the course then crosses over a bridge and into the eastern part of the city, where the next stretch of the course takes runners along the edges of Cave Hill National Cemetery.
Runners next head east along Lexington Road into Louisville’s Cherokee Park, where runners will make their way along nearly two miles of the park’s Scenic Loop, which has separate lanes for cars and walkers, runners and bikers. The route will take runners past the Cherokee Golf Course near the park’s western edge as well as past Hogan’s Fountain, which lies right in the heart of the park along the Scenic Loop.
The last few miles of the race bring runners back into downtown, past the Louisville Slugger Museum, the Kentucky Science Center and the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, all the way to the finish line on Main Street in front of the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, where you can enjoy and sip to your heart’s content.
