A race just for Fun, Pints, and Points!

We're proud to bring back one of Fit & Able's newest holiday races: the Fortnight Before Christmas! The Fortnight Before Christmas is part of Fit & Able's Holiday race series.

Choose between a 1, 2, or 3 lap race (overall and age group awards for each) and of course young kids are welcome to participate with parents too! Each lap is just under a mile.

All finishers will get a great Fortnight Brewery pint glass and the first 100 to register (for those 21+) will get their first pint on us! Fortnight is also running a special for this event so all other pints are just $4 (core beers only)! *Only one drink ticket per adult participant!

Come join us for a unique race and enjoy some great beers at Fortnight Brewery!
