DETROIT (UPI) -- Organizers of "Detroit's First Ever Chicken Race" said 17 fleet-footed fowl raced through a lot behind a bar to draw attention to urban farming.

Karthik Kavasseri, 23, organizer of the event, said nearly 200 fans came out for the Sunday event behind the Temple Bar to watch the race, listen to live music and raise awareness of urban farming, The Detroit News reported.

Athena, a 1-year-old hen owned by Paul Trombley, won the face by being the closest to the finish line after 3 minutes.

"We always want to do fun stuff for the city," Trombley said. "It sounded like a blast."

Trombley said he will donate his winnings to the Still Point Buddhist Center in Detroit.
