Louisville, KY

Come join us in Jefferson Memorial Forest for Viking Dash Trail Run: Louisville. Once you’re through the starting straight, you’ll be under the forest canopy enjoying a beautiful course with a few challenging climbs. This year we’ve upped the game with the addition of our new “Night Raid”. Try running the trails at dusk for a completely different experience and claim your glow-in-the-dark medal.
