Bourbon Chase

Bourbon Chase

October 4-5, 2024

Join us this fall for the race that celebrates the best of Kentucky. The Bourbon Chase is a 200-ish mile running relay across the Bluegrass State that winds its way through the historic Kentucky Bourbon Trail.

Teams will come together in the city of Bardstown to kick off this running adventure at Jim Beam Distillery where you’ll head east on quiet, tree-lined country roads with beautiful rolling hills and the scenic backroads of the Bluegrass Region. Over two days and one glorious night, you’ll run past picturesque horse farms, stopping at some of the very best bourbon distilleries along the way. And we can’t forget to mention the incredibly welcoming Kentucky communities—can you say spirit award?

The journey ends in downtown Lexington, where you and your team will cross the finish line together. An epic party awaits, hosted by Town Branch Bourbon. Celebrate your victory with music, dancing, The Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. beer garden and plenty of bourbon sampling action at this party*.

*All runners must be 21 years and older to participate
