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.


The 2022 Urban Bourbon Half Marathon presented by Jim Beam® course celebrates Louisville’s river heritage and starts and finishes along Main Street in downtown Louisville. As you head out of downtown, you’ll cross the Ohio River on the historic Big Four Pedestrian Bridge into Indiana. The course continues through downtown Jeffersonville, Ind., and runs along the river through Clarksville, Ind. You’ll loop back across the Big Four, cut through parts of the Butchertown neighborhood past Lynn Family Soccer Stadium, then pick up the Louisville Loop along Beargrass Creek and continue along River Road into the heart of downtown. The race finish drops you off right at the entrance of Fourth Street Live! – the home of our Urban Bourbon Bash. And, yes, the Louisville Crashers will be there to help everyone celebrate with a three-hour concert. The award-winning after-party offerings include bourbon tastings, craft beer, a Kentucky delicacy known as burgoo (look it up) and local pizza.
