After 147 Kentucky Derbys, Louisville Knows Sports

Inaugural Urban Bourbon Walk Will Take Place October 25 in Downtown Louisville

Collectible, One-of-a-Kind Cloisonné Pins Available at Four Establishments

 Louisville, Ky. – October 20, 2014 – Participants in the Louisville Sports Commission’s Urban Bourbon Half Marathon – and others wishing to join in a unique entertainment experience – can score a custom-made, collectible cloisonné pin commemorating the inaugural Urban Bourbon Walk in downtown Louisville on Oct. 25.

The Urban Bourbon Walk was created to provide those participating in the Urban Bourbon Half Marathon another opportunity to visit downtown Louisville and experience America’s only native spirit and celebrate the 200-year history of the Kentucky bourbon industry. All participants of the half marathon and locals who enjoy a night downtown are encouraged to participate in the inaugural Urban Bourbon Walk.

Down One Bourbon Bar, The Haymarket Whiskey Bar, Maker’s Mark Bourbon House and Lounge, and St. Charles Exchange each will have a supply of pins for distribution during their respective hours of operation this coming Saturday.

Participants in the Urban Bourbon Half Marathon simply need to visit any one of the designated establishments and show their finisher’s medal, a replica of a bottle of Evan Williams bourbon, to receive a pin free of charge. People who did not participate in the half marathon are also welcome to visit any one of the designated establishments, indicate they are participating in the Urban Bourbon Walk and purchase a libation made with Kentucky bourbon to receive the same collectable pin. The pins are limited one per person, ages 21 and over only.

Each of the participating establishments also will offer special discounts on food and beverage to participants in the Urban Bourbon Half Marathon who show their finisher’s medal or race bib.
