About Beer Run®

The Beer Run® isn’t about who’s the fastest or fittest, it’s quite the opposite actually! It’s all about good people, good beer, self-love, and self-expression. The route consists of a 5km run, there are 5 beer stops or as we like to call them “Dehydration Stations” on the route. Each beer stop is stocked up with a different craft beer and will provide a bush bar, music and chill area where you can relax your weary body before heading on to the next point.

Once you’ve completed the roughly 5km course, we’ll welcome you back into the Ultimate After-Party with an ice cold beer at your final beer stop and a full afternoon of festivities – live music, games, giveaways, food trucks and more beer!

We are proud to announce Liqui Moly South Africa as official lubricant to The Beer Run®, Liqui Moly making sure your vehicle never suffers from the same hangover you do.

Maxxis tyres have come onboard as the official tyre to The Beer Run®, and are proud to announce, the Maxxis Beer Pong arena, where you can take your beer pong skills to the next level.

Frequently Asked Questions

An awesome 5km run/walk route, with all the bells and whistles, an amazing finishers medal, access to the finish area festival, 5 beers on route (roughly 300ml each).
You will know all about these once you reach the finish-line! A Dehydration Station is our name for a beer stop. Your entry allows you one beer (roughly 300ml) at each dehydration station. Each one will feature a different beer that you can try. The dehydration stations will appear every 1km along the route, so you will never have to go too long without a full beer in your hand.
It’s beer o’clock on our watch. But if you’re feeling competitive well then we recommend wearing a watch and timing yourself, if you have one of those fancy heart rate/step counter thingymabobs, who knows maybe you will get some loyalty/fitness points for your efforts.
Do you drink alone? Neither do we! More people=more fun, so enter, create a team and invite your friends to join you, You even get a discount! On race day you start together, drink together and even dress the same (optional unless you are identical twins, then your mom probably dressed you the same anyway)
This event was made for you! It is not a race (don’t let those skinny buggers in polly shorts tell you otherwise). We don’t care how you get to the beer stops it is all about spending time with your drinking buddies. Each beer stop is equipped with a chill area, entertainment and great views so you can take your time on route. Anyone can do 5km, especially with the motivation of a beer every kilometre.
No unfortunately all extra beer must be purchased from one of our vendors . We do however recommend you buy a "road beer” from one of our vendors before heading out on the route.
As long as the pram is capable of doing some off-road and you have a designated pram driver, you can bring your little racer along. Please be aware there could be a chance of rain and intoxicated people on route.
Do you stop drinking beer in the rain? Neither do we, the show will go on! Bring a rain jacket or umbrella and suck it up princess.
A mix of tar, paved roads and farm dirt roads, we promise there is nothing that will make you trip and spill your beer.
Nobody likes dog hair in their beer! We suggest you leave Fido at home for this one.
Yes of course, the route even has a shortcut to the finish (you will miss some beer stops and the free beer that goes with them if you do shortcut) if you are feeling like a beer bench is where you would rather spend the rest of your day.
You know this the beer run right? Seriously we don’t want to exclude you so certain beer stops will have cider or flavoured beer options.
Yes we call it water! It will be available at each Beer Stop, to help the rehydration process, we don’t want you peaking to early. Please note this will be good old government water not the fancy bottled stuff, we don’t want you going soft.
Once you have registered online, all you need to do is print out your confirmation and bring it with to the beer run. You should aim to be at registration at least 45minutes before your start time. Here you will receive your run number, beer vouchers for the beer stops and batch start arm bands. Then we suggest heading to the bar to grab your favourite brew to start warming up! If you have to ask if its too early for a drink.. Then you're an amateur and and we can't be friends.
Unfortunately if we reach our capacity we won’t allow registrations on the day as we don’t want beer riots when the beer points run out of beer. Check out our event Facebook page for updates on when we are nearing capacity. Always remember the early drinker catches the worm, usually in a shot of Tequila.
Spectator/festival tickets are free, just bring money for food and beer. The Beer Run accepts cash or Zapper, so download the Zapper app before you come. With Zapper your phone can be your best drinking buddy, because it never runs out of money.
You select a start batch when you enter, this time is based on what you feel is early enough to start drinking (we feel the earlier the better), if you entered as a team, your team captain should have your batch start time.
Once you have deleted your so called friends off Facebook, you can log into your my active account and transfer their entry to a new real friend. This must be done before 18th May 2017.
