Urban Bourbon Half Marathon presented by Jim Beam®

10/8
8 am

The Urban Bourbon Half Marathon presented by Jim Beam® is an experiential destination event that celebrates and promotes 200 years of Louisville and Kentucky distilling history, combined with a two-state half marathon route that celebrates Louisville’s river heritage and provides a distinct downtown running experience. 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.
