- Where is Midway? Midway is located “midway” between Lexington and Frankfort and is just off I-64. It is approximately 15 miles from Lexington, 65 miles from Louisville, and 90 miles from Cincinnati. Midway is surrounded by thoroughbred farms and is near the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. A great site with information on Midway and area attractions can be found here.
- What do I get for my entry fee? You will receive a long sleeve technical shirt (in your choice of men’s or women’s sizing) with the IHHM logo, an 11″ x 17″ poster of the IHHM art work, and a custom race bib. Finishers will receive a unique and collectible finisher medal. Overall and age group awards for the Half Marathon will be custom pottery hand made by Kentucky Mudworks. There will also be custom overall and age group awards for the 12k. More details coming soon!
- I’m coming from out of town. Where can I stay? A listing of accommodations in the Midway area can be found here. Info on our host hotels in Lexington, KY can be found here. Midway is approximately 20 minutes from Lexington. Lexington is the second largest city in Kentucky and home to many hotels. One thing to consider when making accommodations is the Keeneland horse racing meet will be running, which means a large number of people will be coming into the Lexington area for the weekend. If you’re coming from out of town and need to book a place to stay please do it sooner rather than later. Some alternate towns with hotels that are near Midway are Georgetown (12 miles), Frankfort (13 miles), Shelbyville (33 miles), Winchester (33 miles), Harrodsburg (35 miles), Richmond (41 miles), and the Louisville metro area (50 miles).
Where does the money that’s raised go? Woodford Humane Society, The City of Midway, Versailles Police Department Shop with a Cop, and Midway Area Ministerial Association each benefit from the event. This race is locally owned and operated by John’s Run/Walk Shop.
