About Louisville Triple Crown of Running

The Louisville Triple Crown of Running is a series of races held in Louisville, Kentucky, originally consisting of the Rodes City Run 5K, the Pepsi Challenge 10K, and the Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon. Running all three races in the series completes the Triple Crown, mimicking the Triple Crown that thoroughbred racing jockeys can win at the Kentucky Derby. Currently, the races consist of a 5K, 10K and 15K that are held each March and April.

Created to Challenge

The Louisville Triple Crown of Running was founded in 1984 by Gil Clark, Bob O’Leary, and Wally Deener, who envisioned creating a series of races that would challenge runners of all levels and promote fitness within their local Louisville community. Since the first successful year of the Louisville Triple Crown of Running, the races have continued to grow in popularity, bringing together almost 6,000 runners across the three live events in 2023!

Dare Yourself

Runners and walkers alike can take part in the Louisville Triple Crown 5K race, while the 10K and 15K give runners the option to take on a more challenging race. Participants see some of the best parts of Louisville along the course including Waterfront Park, the Ohio River, and the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory.
