This year there’s an even bigger incentive for athletes racing in the Triple Crown of Running.
For the first time ever, a sculptor has been commissioned to design a trophy for the winners of the races which benefit the WHAS Crusade for Children.
Monday, Sculptor Ngoc Phan gave Crusade CEO Dawn Lee a sneak peek at the trophy in his Louisville Stoneware studio.
We can't show you the final design, which will be unveiled at a special event on Wednesday.
If you want to take part in the Triple Crown of Running, you can still sign up for all three races.
