Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Urban Bourbon Half Marathon kicked off Saturday morning at Main and Fifth outside of the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience.

People come from all over to run the half marathon.

They want to have the fastest time, but also enjoy the scenery.

"We start and finish in downtown. We do the scenic route in Cherokee Park and it's the perfect day for it," said Karl Schmitt, Louisville Sports Commission. 

It's about more than just the half marathon, though.

After it's over, people gather for a bourbon tasting.
