About Backside Trail Marathon
Welcome to the Backside Trail Marathon and Half Marathon! Backside Trail Marathon is a running event in May, in Louisville, KY.
Please remember- this is a TRAIL run, and is much harder than your typical marathon. Be prepared for ADVENTURE and FUN. The trails are high quality single-track, and described as gently rolling, but remember; this is subjective! For someone who has never run trails before these are a great intro into trail running, but don’t expect to run your road time or anything close! Expect 130% of your road time or more! Trail running footwear is recommended.
