APRIL 15th, 2017 • THE BARLOW - SEBASTOPOL, CALIFORNIA
Set in the heart of SONOMA COUNTY’s legendary craft brew scene, the Inaugural IPA 10K and BEER MILE INVITATIONAL is a celebration of running and beer. Produced by DESTINATION RACES and hosted by the BARLOW in SEBASTOPOL, CALIFORNIA, this two-day event starts with the MARKETPLACE EXPO, HOPPY EASTER HUNT, and WELCOME RECEPTION on Friday. Saturday begins with a start line BEER TOAST, sponsored by Crooked Goat Brewing, before runners embark on a scenic 6.2-mile loop course. At the finish, runners and their guests are treated to the BEER MILE INVITATIONAL and BEER & MUSIC FESTIVAL at the BARLOW. A special silicone beer glass with beer tickets, access to the festival and SPECTATOR PASSES for the BEER MILE, are all included in the entry fee!
The BEER MILE is a fast paced, suds filled running competition featuring a “CHUG ZONE” on each ¼ mile lap around a block of the BARLOW. Professional beer mile runners from around the country will compete for cash and prizes after a preliminary round pitting brewery teams competing for the coveted BEER MILE SHOE TROPHY. The BEER & MUSIC FESTIVAL features SONOMA COUNTY’s fine breweries, bands, and food, and opens to the general public from 11:30am to 3:00pm.
