Players who knew Old Capital Golf Club back when it was founded in 1946 wouldn't recognize much about the course today. The name back then was Corydon Country Club, the course consisted of just nine holes, and it had no "greens" at all, at least in the modern sense. Each putting surface was made of sand, which meant players had to smooth over their ball marks, putting lines, and secret treasure Xs before heading to the next tee.

In spite of this early inconvenience, players kept returning to the course, enjoying its hilly terrain and the added challenge of Little Indian Creek. And the course has modernized over the years—a second nine holes were added in 1995, and the club also boasts a recently added three-hole par 3 course where youngsters and shorter-hitting beginners can find their fairway legs.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,732 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 71.9 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 133 from the back tees
  • Five sets of tees per hole

Every year, the comic industry’s icons, publishers, and fans converge on the Kentucky International Convention Center for a day of celebrating the graphic arts. Panel tables are all that stand between attendees and such notables as Tony Moore, illustrator for the first issues of The Walking Dead, and Mark Kidwell, co-creator of the Vietnam-zombie crossover, ’68. Throughout the day, convention spaces swell with fans turned out for contests and showcases and tables strain under the weight of merchandise.

Though many timed races focus on endurance and speed, The Stampede emphasizes a different element: fun. During its various 5K dashes, participants of all ability levels test their balance and strength by surmounting obstacles and give their minds a workout with puzzles around the city. Many of the races have two courses—one for racers aged 6–13 and one for those 14 and older. At the end of the run, runners head to The Stampede Village to purchase food and drinks or dance along to live music.

The Glo Run’s 5K fun run event always takes place at night, but it doesn’t seem like it. The course is lined with black lights and lasers, and runners sport glow-in-the-dark gear from t-shirts to sunglasses. On-course DJs add to the festivities, blasting tunes as the untimed participants run, walk, or dance to the finish line. Even more DJs await them there at the glow-in-the-dark after party, which lights up the night better than a raccoon that's swallowed a flashlight.
