Living Archaeology Weekend (LAW) is a free, annual, two-day public outreach event (with Saturday open to the public) held at the Gladie Visitor Center in the Red River Gorge of the Daniel Boone National Forest in eastern Kentucky. One of few public archaeology education programs of its magnitude in Kentucky, LAW offers school children and the general public a variety of educational activities in American Indian and pioneer lifeways, archaeological interpretation, and site preservation. The program is delivered along the picturesque banks of Gladie Creek and Red River.
Kentucky's Trail Half-Marathon is deep in the heart of the world-famous Red River Gorge! This is not a race for first time runners. You will be challenged and be running on rough trails, across a wooden swinging bridge, beside an amazing Natural Arch, and through several creek crossings. This is one of the most magical places you will ever run, and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, September 28th, 2019. You must get your packet and bib on Friday evening between 5 and 9 pm at the registration tent at Natural Bridge Campground behind the Welcome Center in Slade. You need to be at the Rest Area in Slade at 5:30 am on Saturday morning and your bib must be showing to get on the bus. At 6 am the buses will leave to transport you to the starting line. You will be taken deep into the Daniel Boone National Forest and you will run back out ! Buses will pick you up after finishing at Gladie and return you to the Natural Bridge Campground.This is considered one of the baddest trail races east of the Rockies. You have 5 hours to complete it. The Fastest Trail Runner did it in 1 hour and 48 minutes ! The youngest athlete was 13, the most experience was 67.
