About This Activity

Come run "The Greatest Half in History"!

Join us for the 3rd Annual KY History Half, 10K, and 5K in Frankfort, Kentucky on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 8am. The KY History Half is the Commonwealth's first half marathon that celebrates Kentucky's history. Proceeds go to the Kentucky Historical Society Foundation to support the educational programming and services of the Kentucky Historical Society.

All finishers in all three races receive a commemorative KY History race medal.

Pre-race day activities on Friday, September 29th Packet pickup will be from Noon to 7 at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History. Along with visiting our sponsors' tables (yay for our sponsors!), anyone with a race bib can tour the Kentucky Historical Society museums for free (be sure to check out the orrery -- you can't miss it! -- Lincoln's watch, heard in the Spielberg movie "Lincoln," the plaster cast of Daniel Boone's skull and more). At 7:30 the action moves down the block to the Old State Capitol Lawn where you can Jam with the Mayor and the Louisville Crashers. This family friendly concert lasts until 10 p.m. We'll also be taking race registrations. See you there!

Bring the kids! There will also be lots of activities for the family on race day. Children can participate in an amazing race, searching for facts and artifacts in our fascinating exhibit that covers Kentucky's emergence from prehistoric times to the present (so bring your water bottle!). Free, no prior signup needed.
