LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - About 18,000 runners will take part in the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and miniMarathon Saturday, April 19.
Registered runners need to pick up their preparation packet and goodie bag at the Race Expo. It's held in the Kentucky International Convention Center at 221 S 4th St. on Thursday from 4 to 8 p.m. and Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The Race Expo isn't just for registered runners, though. There will be 100 vendors selling health and fitness products, athletic apparel and official race gear. Attendees can also get a free massage.
Organizers suggest runners pick up their info as soon as possible because they expect a crowd Friday night. There is no packet pick up on race day.
Saturday is the largest annual day of road running in Kentucky. For more information on the KDF Marathon and miniMarathon, visit the Digital Derby Guide on wave3.com, under the home tab.
