Join us for the second annual Bourbon City Mile! Year one was everything we could have hoped for and more! We had fast milers, fun families, and plenty of delicious bourbon and cuisine. This year we hope to be even better! Our race will once again be during the National Bourbon Day celebration in Bardstown, the Bourbon Capital of the World. Once again, we will have runs for all different skill levels and ages. After the run, enjoy bourbon tastings, delicious food trucks, and music. This race will kickoff Bardstown's Bourbon celebration weekend which includes, the Bourbon Mixer after our event and the Bourbon Street Concert on Saturday. All proceeds from this race will go towards building hiking trails in Bardstown. Last year, because of your participation, we were able to purchase a bridge and help revive the trails at Community Park. The trail is open to the public and will be renamed "Town Creek Trail."

As a part of our initiative to create ecotourism in Bardstown, we hope to make our race as eco-friendly as possible. We will have no cups on our 1 mile course. The cups we have at the finish will be biodegradable. We will have recycling, compost, and trash bins located throughout the grounds with information on what goes in each receptacle. Our shirts are made from 100% recycled materials (mostly plastic bottles) and our vendors will use biodegradable utensils and cups. We love our hometown and want to keep it beautiful and clean!
