Runners experience the excitement in the city around this two-week festival, including a free voucher to enjoy the horse races at Churchill Downs on opening night. Multiple runners cited running through Churchill Downs as a key race highlight, and you see the horses training for the big day!

"Running through Churchill Downs [is] a key race highlight."

On top of the excitement around the Derby, the event organizers do a wonderful job with the race itself. Nominations said the race was a great value for an event this size, and that it was exceptionally well-managed from pre-race communication to every aspect of race day.
