Welcome to the Penticton Beer Run
June 2nd, 2018
Start and Finish
Shuttle buses for the Penticton Beer Run will pick up from the SOEC starting at 9:30am. Participants will be given their shuttle departure time when registration closes May 28th.
This is a beautiful, gentle 10 km course showing off some of the best vistas in the South Okanagan. The flat or gentle downhill route is easily managed by running or walking.
The start line is right inside a genuine Hops Farm, from there scenery just gets better as you come along clay banks above the lake and into Penticton’s downtown. After a few brewery samples and a couple food/water pit stops from the likes of Smuggler’s Smoke House, Patio Burger and Papa John’s Pizza you’ll travel along the waterfront, past the historic paddle wheeler and down the channel waterway. A couple blocks off the channel runners will visit the last brewery and cross the finish line to celebrate with everyone in the garden patio of the Kettle Valley Station Pub located at the Penticton Ramada Inn and Courtyard. The finish line is located right across the street from the morning shuttle pick up location.
The Beer Run will include tastings from the Cannery Brewery, Bad Tattoo Brewing , Tin Whistle Brewing, Fire Hall Brewery, Barley Mill Brew Pub and Highway 97 Brewing. Fire Hall Brewery will be set up at the start line for your first taste of the Penticton Micro-brew scene, you will proceed to Cannery Brewery, then past Hoodoo Adventure Company just across the Street where you will find Barley Mill Brewery. From there you will head to Bad Tattoo and then along Penticton’s lakeshore to Tin Whistle Brewing located in a pop up at Patio Burger. The course then follows the Channel Parkway to Penticton’s newest brewery Highway 97 before finishing with live music, more beer and great eats at the Kettle Valley Station Pub Courtyard. What a way to spend the day!
Includes: Shuttle, run, tastings, a beer at the finish line, $5 coupon for food at the KVS Pub at the finish line and a branded Grunt (32oz min-growler) to the first 200 people that register!
