The Bourbon Chase
The Bourbon Chase, powered by Ragnar, celebrates the best of Kentucky. It is a 200-ish mile running relay across the Bluegrass State that winds its way through the historic Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Teams come together in the city of Clermont to kick off this running adventure where runners head east on quiet, tree-lined country roads with beautiful rolling hills and the scenic backroads of the Bluegrass Region.
Over two days and one glorious night, runners go past picturesque horse farms, stopping at some of the very best bourbon distilleries along the way. And we can’t forget to mention the incredibly welcoming Kentucky communities—can you say spirit award? The journey ends in downtown Lexington where you and your team will cross the finish line together for an epic party. Celebrate the victory with music, dancing, a beer garden and plenty of bourbon sampling action at this party*.
*All runners must be 21 years and older to participate
