WHEN BEER MEETS RUN­NING

The beer- and-wine fes­ti­val for those who like a marathon ses­sion

Runner's World (UK) - - RACE -

From Beer Miles to ca­sual pints at the pub after a race or train­ing ses­sion, beer has al­ways gone hand in hand with run­ning. Un­wind­ing with a beer gives run­ners the chance to share tales of der­ring- do and re­flect on how and why that PB was achieved or missed by a hair’s breadth. The UK’S big­gest provider of ad­ven­ture racing, Rat Race, is tak­ing the beer-and-run­ning re­la­tion­ship one step fur­ther this sum­mer with a brand-new event called Bar­rel of Laps. Bar­rel of Laps is the beer-and-wine fes­ti­val for those who like a marathon ses­sion. The chal­lenge is sim­ple.

Carry a beer bar­rel around a two-mile lapped course as many times as you can to earn re­wards as you go. There will be on- course chal­lenges that your bar­rel has to com­plete and you can run alone or in a team. At this event it is the bar­rel’s laps that count, so run­ners of all abil­i­ties can take on the chal­lenge to­gether to earn re­wards. Plus, the more laps you do the more beer you’ll earn! Wrapped up in­side a beer-and-wine fes­ti­val, Bar­rel of Laps will be a grand meet­ing of beer and run­ning. Or­gan­is­ers Rat Race are renowned for cre­at­ing that big- event feel and this will be no dif­fer­ent. With on- site camp­ing, live mu­sic, eight wines, two types of fizz and 20 beers, this is one for the run­ning beer lover. All of this is set in­side the beau­ti­ful Clay­don Es­tate in Buck­ing­hamshire, once home to Florence Nightin­gale. Don’t miss out on a clas­sic week­end in the English coun­try­side. It’s time to get Fizz-ical!
