Give the gift of run and register before December 24th for the low price of $45. Steven Lindsey already has — his fast action earned him Bib# 1 in the 2018 half marathon.

What’s so special about the KY History Half?

The KY History Half is the Commonwealth’s only half marathon that celebrates Kentucky’s history.  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.

On race day, you will truly “run through history,” past fascinating historical sites and monuments including the imposing KY Military History Museum, the classically beautiful Old State Capitol and the simply beautiful Garrard-Crittenden 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.” Click here to learn more about the historic sites along this amazing course.
