The  Ge Appliances Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon & Marathon is a long-standing tradition held every spring in Kentucky. It has become the largest annual day of road racing in the state. As 2023 marks the 50th annual miniMarathon and 22nd annual Marathon, the Festival looks forward to another historic event. Participants will start at Louisville Slugger Field in downtown Louisville and run through numerous neighborhoods, experiencing all aspects of our wonderful city, including a run through the infield of historic Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. Then cross the finish line at Lynn Family Stadium, home of Louisville FC and Racing Louisville where they will be created by family and friends for our post race party!

Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in our virtual race which will allow runners who cannot join us in Louisville, to complete the mini or full marathon wherever is convenient for them.
