RunTheBluegrass brings 1,000 to Woodford County


Saturday’s 10th annual RunTheBluegrass began and ended at The Kentucky Castle, with about 1,000 runners winding their way through rural Woodford County. A gorgeous fall morning and the prospect of running in-person races of three different lengths – including the 13.1 mile half-marathon – attracted runners from across America. Versailles police officers and Woodford Sheriff’s deputies provided traffic control. According to local runner and former Sun Midway correspondent Vanessa Seitz, race director Eric Patrick Marr and assistant Rachel Crabtree were praised by runners for hosting a safe, well-organized event. Seitz, who works for RunTheBluegrass, said the event was a bright spot for many in a year when most live events for runners were cancelled. “The course was stunningly beautiful, runners appreciated the opportunity to run safely, local police and farms and residents were so supportive of the race, and I’m so happy that we were able to do this safely and give runners something to look forward to,” Seitz said. “We hope to make this an annual fall event. It really was an incredible day – thank you to all the volunteers, race staff and runners who came out to the race!”
