Urban Bourbon Half Marathon

8 am

The Urban Bourbon Half Marathon  is an experiential destination event that celebrates and promotes 200 years of Louisville and Kentucky distilling history. The course starts and finishes in downtown Louisville and winds through the fall foliage of one of Louisville’s most scenic parks, Cherokee Park. The half marathon features exclusive bourbon experiences and a post-race party that was heralded by Runners’ World magazine as one of the best half marathon after-parties in the country. Walkers may participate but must be able to keep a 15:00 minute per mile pace in the Half Marathon since roads will reopen at this pace.
