Route information
This scenic 6.2 mile loop course started and finishes in the center of The Barlow, an artisan marketplace located in downtown Sebastopol, California. Set in the heart of Northern California's renowned beer country the course takes runners out on country roads past farms, vineyards and open space fields, and then brings runners back into town on the paved West County and Rodota Trails for a picturesque finish on McKinley St. in The Barlow.

The entertaining Brewery Relay Challenge follows the men and women's Beer Mile races. Teams of 4 compete for the Growler Trophy.
