2023 Louisville triple crown of running

Let’s get down and derby! The Louisville Triple Crown of Running is returning to Kentucky. Come and run in the trio of races that the local running community has come to love for nearly 40 years!  The series kicks off with our 5K on March 4, followed by our 10K on March 18, and concludes with the 15K on April 1 – OR if you can’t make it – take advantage of our virtual option! Run one or run all – it’s entirely up to you. (Bonus! Sign up for all three and get $5.00 off each race.) Come and run with us and get cheered on by the Derby City faithful!   

These races fill up as fast as a horse at Churchill Downs. So, if you’re looking for a race in 2023, or looking to try out a new distance in the new year, don’t hesitate. Join the Louisville Triple Crown of Running community today. 

All of our races offer unique swag to take home.
