Approximately a 13.1-mile looped trail race that begins and ends at the Fraley Amphitheatre at Carter Caves State Park. The course takes runners along the State Park trails. Runners will be treated to miles of winding single-track trails and natural landmarks that include stunning rock overhangs, Raven Bridge, Fern Bridge, Smokey Bridge, Shangra La Arch, Natural Bridge, Smoky Valley Lake, and many of the State Parks famous caves. Carter Caves Half Marathon is an absolutely beautiful however very challenging course and recommended for runners who have previously competed in more advanced trail running events. #bestkeptsecretinkentucky
