The Rugged Red is a Trail Half Marathon in the Red River Gorge. It is a true trail run. You will see beautiful vistas from the run which is through one of the most diverse geologic areas on the planet. Natural stone arches dot the area. Community organizers are continuing the race after an announcement that the race would discontinue. This race is an asset for the community in that, not only does the race support the Slade Kentucky Trail Town and the Search and Rescue Teams, it also helps the local economy, long considered economically distressed, by bringing runners and their families to the area. We hope that many runners will return as we have taken steps to ensure that some of the original organizers are involved with this continued effort. Thank you for registering!
