Des­ti­na­tion Race

Races with Beer on Tap

Canadian Running - - SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER 2017 - By Tracey Tong

For those de­voted to the sport, run­ning is its own re­ward, but we’re not about to turn down a re­fresh­ing brew af­ter a gru­elling race.

They’re not your tra­di­tional beer mile – many of these races fea­ture beau­ti­ful scenery and de­lec­ta­ble treats to ac­com­pany the bev­er­ages, which are of­ten served in col­lectible glasses. They make great fun runs for clubs and groups of friends, but or­ga­niz­ers don’t dis­count that run­ners are still look­ing for a PB or even a BQ, and so of­fer or­ga­nized events and fast cour­ses – there just hap­pens to be an ex­tra in­cen­tive to reg­is­ter for (and com­plete) the race. Af­ter all, who doesn’t want to be greeted by a tall blonde at the fin­ish line?

Here are our favourite runs, both at home and in­ter­na­tion­ally, that of­fer free beer or wine.
