The JMF Trails Hillbilly Half

The 5th annual JMF Trails Hillbilly Half will take place 11/03/18 at Jefferson Memorial Forest in Louisville KY. C'mon down and wallow in the hollow and see what amazing trails the forest has to offer! These trails are tough!

Course Description

The race begins in the Horine area.

Runners begin by running around the lake in the Horine area and then descending the Yost Ridge Trail to the Welcome Center in Jefferson Memorial Forest where they pick up the Siltstone Trail.

Runners make their way down the Siltstone Trail past Bearcamp road to a turnaround on the ridge of the Siltstone Trail.
Runners return the same way they departed, just in a lot more pain and fatigued! Ha!
It should be VERY challenging and runners should expect their finishing times to possibly be as high as 150% of their road half marathon times.


Every runner will receive a cool hand crafted trophy that is definitely one of a kind.

All runners will receive a shirt with our awesome "Hill-Billy Goat".

Top finishers will receive prizes from our sponsors- The be determined still.
