LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Some Kentuckians took home top honors during the Kentucky Derby Festival’s 49th annual miniMarathon and the 21st annual Marathon.
Saturday’s warm and breezy conditions brought out nearly 8,000 runners to Main Street near Slugger Field for this annual tradition.
Jarrett Mattingly of New Haven led the Men’s Division in the miniMarathon with a time of 1:08.46 and Caroline Gosser was the top runner in the Women’s Division. Her time was 1:17.49.
In the full Marathon, Lexington’s Antonio March crossed the finish line with a time of 2:25.41. Instead of hydrating with water after the race, officials said he toasted his victory with an Old Fashioned, Louisville’s official cocktail.
Tricia Hengehold of St. Louis was the top women’s finisher and a first-time winner with a time of 2:56.53.
The race featured areas of downtown Louisville, Old Louisville, Churchill Downs and some of the scenery of the Olmstead parks system.
