Raven Run Nature Sanctuary --- Our Race Venue

Raven Run is a unique, 734-acre nature sanctuary located just outside of Lexington. The park borders the Kentucky River and provides a great place for hiking and wildlife viewing. Ten miles of trails pass through meadows, woodlands, and streams characteristic of the inner Bluegrass. Historic remnants of early 19th century settlers can also be found throughout the park.
