2016 Kentucky Ale Horse Capital Marathon and Half Marathon

Participate in the second annual Horse Capital Marathon, staged in one of Lexington’s scenic horse farm areas. A portion of proceeds will benefit Blue Grass Farms Charities. The marathon will be a quasi-double-loop course on rolling, scenic country roads, passing some 40-plus horse farms. In fact, runners are never out of view of a horse farm for the duration of the race! There will be a pace limit of 14 minutes, 30 seconds per mile (6 hours, 15 minutes total time), and this will be an officially-certified course. Times will be submitted to the Boston Athletic Association for Boston Marathon qualifier status.

Cost for the full marathon is $95.90/person. Cost for the half marathon is $85.30/person.

Saturday May 21, from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. Start location: Fasig-Tipton Company, Inc., 2400 Newtown Pike, Lexington, Ky.
