After thousands of warriors compete in The Warrior Dash at Pope's Creek Ranch in Lebanon Saturday, June 23, Charles Mills, owner of Chaser's, hopes they will come to downtown Lebanon to eat BBQ, enjoy live music and a car show.

Mills asked the Lebanon City Council during its meeting May 7, for a noise variance from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, June 23. He also asked for permission to have a car show and motorcycle rally in downtown Lebanon that same day. The council gave him their approval for the noise variance, and also permission to use portions of Proctor Knott Avenue and M.L. King Avenue for the car show and motorcycle rally.

This will be the first Warrior Dash held in Kentucky. The 3.4-mile course includes 14 obstacles that require participants to climb and crawl, ending with the Muddy Mayhem (an 80-foot mud pit that runners must wade through while ducking under barb wire) and the Warrior Roast (two rows of small fires for the runners to jump over). Unlike a traditional road race, in which the runners start at the same time, Warrior Dash participants tackle the course in groups of up to 500 people every half hour. The first wave of runners will start at 9 a.m. and the final wave is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.

During the council's meeting on May 7, Mills also received approval for another noise variance for 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., Saturday, May 26. He plans to have a live band outside at Chaser's.
