Before competing in a quarter-marathon, it's smart to build up your endurance with weekly runs or one practice marathon the night before. Be prepared with this Groupon.

$32 for One Entry in the Quarter-Marathon ($64 Value)

Running concurrently with a half-marathon, the 6.55-mile race kicks off on Sunday, September 23, at 7:45 a.m. The walker-friendly route concludes at Louisville Slugger Field’s home plate, where racers receive a finisher’s medal before joining the after-party. Participants can also pick up their gear—which includes a race bib, shirt, and other goodies—there the day before the race. See the race website's FAQ page for more information.

Republic Bank Big Hit 1/4 Marathon

During the Republic Bank Big Hit 1/4 Marathon, runners and walkers loop through Louisville, chugging past Main Street landmarks before sliding headfirst into the finish line at Louisville Slugger Field’s home plate. Spectators, musicians, and specialty groups line the 6.55-mile route, cheering on participants and shoveling coal directly into their mouths. At the post-race festivities, every participant dons a finisher’s medal, the speediest runners also receiving an engraved Louisville Slugger bat. A portion of the proceeds from the race—and its sister half-marathon, taking place simultaneously—go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kentuckiana.
