Urban Bourbon Half Marathon

The Spirit of Racing is Alive and Well

Since our Urban Bourbon Half Marathon is meant for those age 21 or older, you must be at least 21 on race day to register.


Bourbon Bash at Fourth Street Live!

The Bourbon Bash at Fourth Street Live! will be held from 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Race participants can enjoy a sampling of bourbons from a number of Kentucky Bourbon Trail distillers. You will also enjoy Bearno’s Pizza, Falls City beer, and plenty of photo opportunities. The popular local band the Louisville Crashers will perform.

Guest admission to the Bourbon Bash is $30 and can be purchased online during registration, at packet pick-up, and on race day. Packet pick-up and race day purchases are cash only.

Urban Bourbon Walk

Participants in the Urban Bourbon Half Marathon presented by Jim Beam® – and others wishing to join in a unique entertainment experience – can score a custom-made, collectible cloisonne pin. The pins are to commemorate the Urban Bourbon Walk in downtown Louisville on Oct. 16.  Runners can show their finisher’s medal and make a purchase to receive a custom pin. Participating Urban Bourbon Trail establishments will be identified at a later date.
