Bourbon Chase @ Along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail
Oct 13 – Oct 14 all-day

 

WILL RUN FOR BOURBON

Bourbon Chase Course MapThe Bourbon Chase celebrates the best of Kentucky. It is a 200-mile journey across the Bluegrass State – through our historic bourbon distilleries, across our majestic horse country, and into our enchanting small towns. The Bourbon Chase is made up of 400 teams. Each team is comprised of 1 captain. Typically there are a total of 12 runners on each team.

Whether you are a serious racer, a casual runner, or just a passionate spectator – there is a place for you in The Bourbon Chase.

Please take a few minutes to peruse our website and watch our video. Drink in the best of Kentucky. Then, we invite you to sign up for The Bourbon Chase – either as a participant or as a volunteer. No matter if you are running the relay or helping on out on the course, we can guarantee you will have a great time.

Over the river and through the woods…Sort of, but not really.

Begin your journey at Jim Beam and head east to Bardstown, the Bourbon Capital of the World. In the quaint city of Bardstown, you pass through Heaven Hill, the largest family-owned distillery in the world. Next, you trek toward the historic and beautiful Maker’s Mark distillery. Exiting the distillery, you head into the heart of central Kentucky, passing some of the state’s most historic areas. First, the course takes you near Perryville Battlefield, where a significant Civil War battle took place. Next, you will head south to Stanford, the second oldest city in Kentucky. Then, the course turns for the north as it passes through the middle of the enchanting community of Danville where the state’s first constitution was written. Finally, before heading back into distillery country, you run through Harrodsburg. Founded as Fort Harrod in 1774, it was the first permanent settlement west of the Alleghenies.

The unique Spanish Mission-style architecture announces that you have reached Four Roses distillery. From here, you come into Lawrenceburg, home of Wild Turkey. Crossing over the Tyrone Bridge, several hundred feet above the Kentucky River, you enter the official gateway to Horse Country. This section of the course, heading toward Woodford Reserve, is undoubtedly the most stunning because of its rolling bluegrass countryside and picturesque horse farms.

From there you head toward the charming community of Midway, home of one of the nation’s leading colleges focusing on equine professions. As you wind your way out of Midway and down the delightful scenic back roads of the Bluegrass Region, the course works its way into downtown Lexington. By now, you can smell and hear the finish line celebration that awaits you and your friends at Triangle Park, near the Alltech Brewery & Distillery.
