Love running? Love beer? Yeah you do! Why not throw ‘em together and celebrate with us at The Canada Beer Run, returning this year now in Ottawa, Toronto, Halifax, Kitchener/Waterloo, Nanaimo and our newest additions Vancouver, Saskatoon and Calgary!!!
Here’s how it works: we get some awesome breweries to come together for the love of beer, and we share it with you! Participants begin in waves every 30 minutes (50-125 in each of our 4 waves) and run from brewery to brewery, stopping at each for 20 minutes to sample a delicious bit of what’s on tap. Each wave has “Beer Bunnies” to make sure you follow the right route and arrive and depart each brewery in a timely fashion.
The Beer Run is meant to be non-competitive, fun and a tad ridiculous. We encourage costumes of all kinds (check our FB page for examples) and suggest bringing your best buds with you. When registering, be sure to pick the same wave so you can all run together!
With limited registrations and a whole load of fun, we suggest registering today before missing out on this epic, wild, refreshing, unique running event!
OUR NATIONAL CHARITY OF CHOICE
New this year!! We have chosen the Canadian Mental Health Association - CMHA as our National Charity, $5.00 from every registration will go to grassroots programs in your community.

All breweries will be sampling 7-8oz of their finest hand crafted beers and have its own unique atmosphere that will energize you for the next leg of the route. Live entertainment, fresh air, beer education, brewery tours, beer games and of course.....beer drinking!
THE FINISH LINE!!! AND TRANSPORTATION?
This is in fact a GREAT question. As you know this an alcoholic event so we will not be shuttling anyone back to their cars. Our recommendation for the day is to have a friend or family member pick you up at the Finish and drop you off at the start OR bus, taxi, walk, bike, crawl to your closest and safest destination. You could even have a combination of all of them! Carpool! Thanks so much for understanding.
