Penticton Beer Run: Get Your Craft Beer and Cardio All in One Shot

Plan your next beercation around the Penticton Beer Run.

Penticton Beer Run: Get Your Craft Beer and Cardio All in One Shot

What are you doing on June 3?

Well, if you love beer and you love running then you should be at the Penticton Beer Run. Unless you are in a Hash House Harriers beer & running group most people tend to keep their beer drinking and running separate, but this summer Hoodoo Adventure Company and the breweries in Penticton, BC want to change that.

Penticton Beer Run

One-hundred percent of the net proceeds will be donated to the non-profit Youth Outdoor Recreation Society.

The run starts at the South Okanagan Events Centre parking lot. From there participants will get dropped off on the KVR trail for a 10km run with brewery tastings along the way.

Stop 1: Square One Hops Farm & Tin Whistle Brewing

Stop 2: Cannery Brewing

Stop 3: Bad Tattoo

Stop 4: Barley Mill Brewpub and Bistro

Stop 5: Highway 97

Final Stop: Kettle Valley Station Pub for some live music and more beer

 

Why Penticton?

Penticton is so well known for its wine, but its thriving beer scene is still pretty unknown, so organizer Lyndie Hill decided this would be a great opportunity for Penticton’s craft beer scene to show the craft world what they’ve got.

“I just thought it would be cool to tie in the KVR and the beautiful scenery. Penticton is so beautiful and we have the hops farm there, which ties in the farm to brewery thing.”

-Lyndie Hill, Penticton Beer Run Organizer

Registration

Registration for the event opened this week and is $65 until May 10. From May 11-June 1 the cost will go up to $75. The fee covers the shuttle ride, tastings, a branded 32oz grunt, a beer at the finish line and $5 worth of food at KVS. So, if you haven’t made vacation plans yet this is definitely an event to plan your beercation around.
