Lexington, Kentucky (LEX 18) — Hundreds of runners crossed the Lexington finish line on Saturday after completing a 200-mile journey through the country of Bourbon.
This weekend celebrated the resurrection of Kentucky Bourbon Chase.
The team started early Friday morning in Birdstown, the capital of Bourbon in the world.
Runners took shifts day and night, winding along the Bourbon Trail, stopping at various distilleries and ending in downtown Lexington.
Many people ran the race, but some walking teams also participated.
“There was a walking team. I know there was a walking team. To be honest, I encourage and believe in walking teams. It makes my heart happy and everyone is an athlete of all types. Because you can see them participating, “said Jeanine. Flores and Diane Vanderbrick.
