Question: What’s the longest-running sports event in the U.S.?

Answer: The Kentucky Derby will run its 150th annual race on Saturday, making it America’s longest continuously run sports event. The race is held every year at historic Churchill Downs and has never been cancelled, though it’s been postponed twice, once in 1945 because of World War II issues, and also in 2020 because of Covid.
