The lore of Foxcatcher Farms continues...

Throughout the decades, the hills and hollows of William duPont's storied estate have tested the limits of thoroughbreds. Barbaro trained for his Triple Crown; Olympic swimmers and wrestlers grappled for glory, and generations of duPonts out-foxed their furry foes.

This year, as the sun rises on the summer solstice, you can follow in the footsteps of greatness.

Whether foal or filly, we invite you to trod the grounds of Fair Hill for the Big Elk Marathon & Half-Marathon. You're in for 26.2 miles of rollicking terrain, on which jockeys have ridden and stallions have stridden. Get the jump out of the gate if you must, but remember: It's a marathon, not a sprint.

And at the height of summer, this race has all the trappings of a sweat-stained steeplechase -- except instead of sipping a mint julep, you'll have competitors nipping at your heels.

Will you be in the hunt?
