2 Person Beer Mile
There are four epic and beer fuelled races to choose from - the IPA 10k, 3k, the Beer Mile and Brewery Relay. All of them scenic, all of them crazy, and all of them involving the very best of beer.
The IPA10K is a beautifully scenic and (mostly) flat run open to runners and fast walkers of all ages. The IPA10K first wave starts at 8:00am with a toast of appreciation before runners embark on a scenic 6.2 mile loop course. The course winds its way through a neighborhood past the high school onto country roads north of Sebastopol before returning on the W. County Trail and back to The Barlow. Elite and faster runners in first wave.
The course is considered easy-to-moderate difficulty with a few slight ascents followed by descents. The majority will be run on paved roads.
This 1.8-mile loop is the first mile of the 10k route before deviating at Analy High School and returning to The Barlow. The 3K is open to runners and walkers of all ages. Strollers and dogs are permitted.
The World's Best Beer Run is the perfect opportunity to showcase your beer chugging and speed running skills to a (mostly) supportive, cheering crowd.
You and a teammate will each chug a Bella Snow Soft Ale (2.4% ABV) before each 1.4 mile lap. Each person must complete 2 beers and 2 laps in any order. Open to men, women, and mixed teams of two, or if you’re inspired (crazy) and good enough, enter as an individual and run all four.
The Brewery Relay Challenge
The Brewery challenge is a crazy 4 person relay between the local breweries where each team member drinks one beer at the start of their lap and then drinks another before the next team member begins.
