Best Fun-draiser ever #willrunforbeer
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 the Kettle Valley Railway and clay banks above the lake and into Penticton’s downtown. After a few brewery samples and a couple food/water pit stops 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 another brewery and then head to the finish line to celebrate!
Brewery and Eatery Overview
The Beer Run will include tastings from the Cannery Brewery, Bad Tattoo, Tin Whistle, Barley Mill, Highway 97 and Firehall Breweries, Smugglers Smokehouse, Patio Burger and Papa John’s Eateries! Firehall Brewery will be set up at the start line for your first taste of the local Micro-brew scene, you will run down the KVR and past Papa John’s tent 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 down the lakeshore past Smugglers to Tin Whistle at Patio Burger and along the Channel Parkway to Highway 97 Brewery before finishing with live music, more beer and great eats. What a way to spend the day! Please note: the course may change in 2019 due to new breweries opening in Penticton!
