The Canada Beer Run
A 9.1k running event through the streets of Nanaimo that starts and ends with beer. The event will start at Longwood Brewery and will include beer stops at several local breweries along the way.
Participants begin in waves every 30 minutes (125 in each of the 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. Costumes of all kinds are encouraged and participants should check out the Facebook page for examples from the previous year's events.
