The Iron Horse has reached capacity. We do not have a waiting list as we take extra people to allow for no-shows on race morning. We think 1,300 is our course capacity so taking 1,600 entries usually means about 1,300 runners will show up the day of the race. We do not allow selling of bibs this year but we do allow people to defer their entry to 2015 if they can't attend this year's race. See our FAQ page for info on how to do this.

If you didn't get registered for the Iron Horse in time here are some other local races at the same time of year that we recommend:

Oct 25 - Urban Bourbon Half Marathon - Louisville, KY
Oct 26 - BrickHouse Betweenathon 19.65 Miler - Stanford, KY
Nov 15 - Renfro Rock N Run Half Marathon - Renfro Valley, KY
