Those intrepid enough to take on the famous 200-mile relay race across Kentucky bourbon country face a variety of challenges, from the rolling terrain of the Bluegrass to uncooperative weather and stretches of nighttime running. Luckily for this year’s 4800 or so Bourbon Chasers, Danville will welcome runners with its signature flair.
As usual, many downtown Danville restaurants will remain open for extended hours to cater to hungry runners and their teams. Between Captain Franks Hotdog Emporium, Jane Barleycorn’s Market and Bar, Taqueria Los Amigos, Chocolate-N-More, Cue on Main, Bluegrass Pizza and Pub and the Hub Coffeehouse and Café, visitors will have their choice of hotdogs, Mexican fare, pizza, salads, sandwiches, and gourmet treats of all kinds.
Bluegrass Pizza and Pub, Beer Engine, and Jane Barleycorn’s offer draft beer, wines, and cocktails, too, for night owls needing a little refreshment. All of these restaurants are within one block of the exchange point, making them quick and convenient stops.
Chocolate-N-More is offering a 15% discount to all Bourbon Chase runners, and other restaurants like Baskin Robbins, Orange Leaf, Papa John’s, and Subway will remain open for extended hours as well.
This year’s festivities will again feature a downtown party in the park on the corner of 4th and Main Streets, where event sponsor Brooks will host live music and giveaways. This amount of fanfare and fun is nothing new for Danville, which is a two-time winner of the Bourbon Chase’s Most Spirited Community award.
“We look forward to welcoming Bourbon Chase runners each year,” says Jennifer Kirchner, Executive Director of the Danville-Boyle County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “They bring so much energy and excitement to Main Street, and we love to match their enthusiasm by welcoming them in style.”
