Horse Capital Marathon as well as Half Marathon set to be hosted in May

For the very 1st time in thirty-five years, the runners of Lexington will have the scope to run a marathon on their home ground. Horse Capital Marathon and Half Marathon on 16th May will begin and finish at Fasig-Tipton, taking the runners past countless horse farms in the 26.2 miles in between.

Bob Baney, the Race director, told that six-hundred people from around thirty-three states already have registered. Bob is a partner in the 3 Way Racing that deals with handles timing as well as management for races across the region.

He added that the whole running boom is really taking off here. Bob showed the development of running events along with a party atmosphere, like color runs as well as themed runs in which people run in dresses, as an example. In warm months, often, there are a dozen races on a single weekend in this region.

He told that the social media has sparked a lot of it – the social element. Also, there are a number of newer running clubs. Hundreds and hundreds of runners downtown every Tuesday evening to take part in West Sixth Brewing Running Club. People run with each other, selecting a 1.5-mile or 3-mile path, or setting their very own course, then return together to socialize at the West Sixth.

Lori Stoneburner told that she always said that Tuesday is her favorite night of the week. She and her co-host Jillian Lykens told that new people come each week.
