Urban Bourbon Half Marathon winds runners through downtown Louisville

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - It was a mix of bourbon and running.

The Urban Bourbon Half Marathon took runners past Whiskey Row in downtown Louisville and through Cherokee Park on Saturday morning.

The finish line was in front of the Evan Williams Bourbon experience.

Michael Moore, who is from the Chicago area, was the first to finish with a time of 1 hour and 14 minutes.

"I'm a big fan of bourbon and this sounded like a great event," Moore said. "I really wanted to come." 

Runners could also take part in the inaugural Urban Bourbon Walk on Saturday tonight.

It was created to give participants another opportunity to visit downtown and learn about Kentucky's bourbon history.
