Whiskey Chaser

Hard Truth Distilling Co. Presents: Whiskey Chaser Running Festival 2023!


Brave tough trails through 325 acres of native forest on the Hard Truth campus in Brown County, Indiana!

Then, join us on the Terrace to enjoy live music, and refuel with Quaff ON! brews and Hard Truth spirits. 


Course Description:

The Whiskey Chaser Running Festival features three extreme trail races — 5 and 10K solo runs, plus a four-person team 20K relay — through the hills of Brown County.

We have a new course for 2023! Participants in this 100% trail event will tour the Hard Truth grounds the rugged way and can finish up with a “shot mile” — for each of the three, .33-mile trips around Hard Truth Terrace, runners will do a shot of a Hard Truth spirit.

Participants should expect to meet some hard truths throughout the race — you’ll be facing several steep hills, creek crossings, and all of the other fun things that come with getting out into nature.
