Today Paul, Grant and Aaron will race in the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon. While the race course looks to be mostly flat and fast going through Downtown Louisville, there are two hills to contend with. One is at mile 12 and the second at mile 23. As you can imagine, hills and wheelchairs don’t go together very well. But that’s not the only obstacle that the 50 Ability Marathons Team will be going up against. Once again they will be racing in the rain and cold. It is forecasted to be in the low 50’s at the 7:25 a.m. Race time and is projected to have showers from 6:00 a.m. Through the remainder of the day.
