The Greatest Half in History

The Greatest Half in History

Frankfort, KY September 30, 2017

A Blast Through the Past!

The KY History Half is the Commonwealth’s only half marathon that celebrates Kentucky’s history.  On race day, you will truly “run through history,” passing fascinating historical sites and monuments including the imposing KY Military History Museum, the classically beautiful Old State Capitol and the simply beautiful Garrard-Crittendon house, to name just a few.  You will even have the chance to run past the grave sites of Daniel and Rebecca Boone during the Mile of Remembrance portion of the race.

To top things off, this charitable event also offers a fun way to support the educational programming and services of the Kentucky Historical Society in its mission to educate and engage the public through Kentucky history in order to confront the challenges of the future.

Take advantage of the current low prices and click RunSignUp to register now. And don’t forget to sign up the kids for the children’s activities on race day– limited space is available for some activities, so don’t miss out.
