LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Louisville Triple Crown of Running (LTCOR) race series, which includes the Anthem 5K Fitness Classic, Rodes City Run 10K and Papa John’s 10 Miler, has been canceled. This year was the final edition of the LTCOR after 35 years.
Due to the steady decline in participation, available sponsorship dollars and rising operating costs, the Triple Crown Race Committee came to the only viable conclusion. The LTCOR could not continue to create the type of experience that would meet their standards and measure up to the quality events they have nurtured for nearly four decades. The committee worked with a number of great people and organizations in an attempt to get ahead of these challenges prior to the 2020 race season to find collaborative solutions. In the end they had to make the difficult, but necessary decision not to move forward with the events.
