Runners in the half marathon follow an out-and-back course that starts and finishes along Main Street in downtown Louisville, near the city’s Louisville Slugger Park. From there, runners follow a counter-clockwise loop through the city, with stretches through Central Park, the campuses of Spalding University and the University of Louisville, and the highlight of the race — the section that takes runners into Churchill Downs. Later in the race, you’ll run a long stretch up 3rd Street before turning back onto Main Street, and in to the finish line at Lynn Family Stadium.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race.
