The railway and (now famous) Chicken House.

Just after Dede McGehee’s pink house, and as you run by Heaven Trees Farm on the right, you pass an elevated section of the RJ Corman railway. Then just before the chicken house you will cross the same railway by this traditional Kentucky tobacco barn, decorated with a quilt.

As you approach the split of the seven miler and half marathon at the Chicken House around mile 3.3, you might be joined by a few feathered-friends as you run. Flanked by a true Kentucky tobacco barn with Kentucky quilt hanging on the front to the right, the chicken house will be to your left.

Currently home to turkeys, bantams, ducks and chickens, the chicken house marks for some about halfway, and for the brave and fearless half-marathoner’s, begins the first of several uphill climbs towards Old Frankfort Pike. A second tobacco barn on the corner of Redd Road and Elkchester Road can also be seen, decorated with a quilt with a chicken design!
