Join us on Sunday, March 17th for the third annual St. Paddy’s Day Beer Mile(ish)! This year the race will start and end at Avant Garde Aleworks, with a stop in the middle at Lumpy Ridge Brewing Company. Runners and walkers of all abilities are welcome, and this year we’ll be introducing two ways to participate in the Beer Mile(ish) – ‘Timed’ and ‘Untimed’ divisions. Wether you’re racing to win or taking a more casual beer-crawl approach this is the event for you! Either way, wear your most festive St. Patrick’s Day fit and get ready to PARTY!

  1. Timed Division: Includes three beers (pre-selected and waiting at each stop) and Pot o’ Gold plus a prize for the fastest runner! Participants in this division will have a 4:00pm race start at Avant Garde with their first beer before racing to the next stop. Second beers will be waiting at Lumpy Ridge before heading back to Avant Garde for the third and final beer. Your official race time concludes when you finish your third beer.
  2. Untimed Division: Includes three beers and Pot o’ Gold plus a chance to win prizes for participating in fun activities along the course! Participants in this division get the first beer at Avant Garde starting at 3:45pm and enjoy it while playing stein pong & cheering on the Timed Division runners. Then walk/run/party to Lumpy Ridge to order a second beer and test your skills at beer quaffing! Lastly, head back to Avant Garde and order the third and final beer.
