Join Run the Bluegrass Half Marathon

Run the Bluegrass Half Marathon boasts as" America’s Prettiest Half Marathon". The course is indeed exquisitely beautiful and both challenging and inspirational. 

It takes place in the city of Lexington, a place rich with history. The start/finish area is located on the grounds of the Keeneland Racecourse, itself a historic site. Well-known throughout the thoroughbred horse racing world, Keeneland today is on the National Register of Historic Places and is still a mecca for racing enthusiasts, serving as the site for several preparation races for the springtime Kentucky Derby.

The event also offers a 5k and 7-mile run. Expect to see horses and lots of green, grassy rolling hills along the route, and also plenty of hills as the course rarely flattens out for very long stretches at a time.

Course Highlights

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.
