  • | 7:25am - 1:25pm | Sports and Recreation
    - Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon & Mini Marathon
    Saturday, April 30, 2016 • Louisville, KY • Course Map

    Both college and professional sports are a perennial draw in this northern central Kentucky city that’s perhaps most famous as the home of the “most exciting two minutes in sports,” the legendary Kentucky Derby, the first leg of the thoroughbred triple crown that kicks off the horse racing season on the first weekend in May each year.

    So it’s fitting that this race helps kick off what is actually a two-week series of events here in Louisville, as the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and Mini Marathon takes place the week before the Derby itself, which runs the following weekend.

    The race sports a course that eliminates some of the hills of past year’s races and showcase more of the city’s historic and tourist-friendly places.

    The race follows an out-and-back route that starts and finishes along Main Street in downtown Louisville, near the city’s Louisville Slugger Park, the home of its AAA-level Louisville Bats minor league baseball team, and the Louisville Extreme Park, a 40,000-sq.-ft public skate park.

    From there, runners follow what is roughly a counter-clockwise loop through the city, which features stretches through its Central Park, the campuses of Spalding University and the University of Louisville, as well as the highlight of the race — the section that takes runners along the infield of Churchill Downs, the hallowed home of the Kentucky Derby itself.

    The half marathon finishes with a nearly four-mile-long stretch along 3rd Street, as runners make their way back northward toward the river and Main Street, where they turn right and head back toward Louisville Slugger Stadium. There’s just one last turn, left onto Preston, before runners cross the finish line.

    More than 14,000 runners and walkers crossed the finish line in both races combined each year, including usually more than 12,000 in the half marathon alone. Both the half marathon and the full marathon are USATF-certified courses, and the full marathon route was also a Boston Marathon qualifying course in 2011.
    Race Weather & Climate

    Nestled along a bend in the winding Ohio River that separates Ohio and Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati, Louisville typically experiences mild to moderately warm weather in April, a month that has brought record temperatures here as low as 21 degrees (in 1875) and as high as 91 degrees (in 1960).

    On race day (April 30), the average low is 49ºF and the average high is 70ºF.

    Tickets for the Belle of Louisville cost $130 (includes food & drinks, and entertainment).

    Belle of Cincinnati tickets cost $60(includes cruise only). Once again, Four Roses Bourbon will be providing a special bourbon tasting on the Belle of Cincinnati; tickets cost $85 (includes food, cruise, and bourbon tasting).



    The Derby Festival made some significant changes to the format of the Great Steamboat Race in 2009, including the addition of the Belle of Cincinnati as the opponent for the hometown vessel, the Belle of Louisville. The Belle of Cincinnati replaced longtime rival, the Delta Queen, in this racing tradition on the Ohio River. Now, instead of the event winner being determined by the first boat to cross the finish line at the Clark Memorial Bridge, the winner of the event is the vessel that accumulates the most points from performing a series of five tasks assigned to each competitor throughout the day and during the race. One of the tasks is a Calliope Contest between the two Belles; other tasks are performed by the boat crews on-board, as well as onshore. Each boat is assigned two judges, in addition to an overall event judge from the Derby Festival. The winner of the event will be awarded a set of silver-plated antlers to replace the traditional gilded antlers that were presented to the winner in the past. The Awards Ceremony will take place immediately following the race at the Chow Wagon in Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville on the Waterfront. Tickets for the Belle of Louisville (while still available) cost $130 and include food and drinks; Belle of Cincinnati tickets cost $55 (includes dinner).

    Four Roses Bourbon will be providing a special bourbon tasting on the Belle of Cincinnati; tickets cost $80 (includes food, cruise, and bourbon tasting). Passenger tickets for both boats may be purchased by calling (502) 584-FEST.

    The Belle of Cincinnati will be competing in the Derby Festival’s Great Steamboat Race for the eighth time – she had previously participated in four consecutive years, beginning in 2002. The Great Steamboat Race was first held in 1963, with the Delta Queen capturing the inaugural contest on the Ohio River. The race series between the two historic vessels ended in 2008 with the hometown Belle of Louisville finishing with an overall record of 22 wins versus the Delta Queen’s 20 victories. The race was canceled once in 1967 and rescheduled in 1966, 1983 and 2011 due to high water. Three other boats have won the event – the Julia Belle Swain in 1976, the Natchez in 1982 and the Spirit of Jefferson in 1999.
