Description

Drink- Run- Repeat. Got your attention?

Then this event is for you! You and your friends will take turns running the magnificent Poplar Grove 5k trail loop. Before each lap is run, you have the option to drink a 12-ounce beer for a 2 minutes deduction off your lap time. Run solo, with your best friend, or on a team of 3 or 4 to complete the 20K course. Beer option only available for those 21 and older.

Your relay batton will be a full beer can.  You must hold this can the entire race. (any team with a racer under 21, will hold a non-alchoholic object)
