BSC Partners With Horse Capital Marathon

The Bluegrass Sports Commission (BSC) today announced a partnership with 3 Way Racing on the inaugural Horse Capital Marathon and Half Marathon which will take place in Lexington on May 16, 2015.

The Horse Capital Marathon and Half Marathon are the first in Lexington in 35 years. The race will begin at 7 AM at Fasig Tipton and will be a quasi-double loop course on rolling, scenic country roads, passing 40-plus horse farms. It will have a 14 minute 30 second pace limit (6 hours, 15 min total) and will be a certified course.

“We are very excited to be partnering with Bob Baney and his team at 3 Way Racing to host a full (26.2 miles) and half marathon (13.1 miles) in Lexington,” said BSC President and CEO Brian Miller. “It has been over 35 years since Lexington has hosted a marathon and we believe that Bob and his team have built an event that will be in Lexington for a very long time. One would be hard pressed to find a more scenic and beautiful course anywhere in the country. This event already has attracted people from all over the nation and will be another great example of how sports can boost the local economy.”

Partial proceeds benefit the Bluegrass Farms Charities. Registration is open now so sign up today at www.horsecapitalmarathon.com. For questions or more information, contact Bob Baney at bobbaney@hotmail.com or (859) 475-3232.
