Set in the heart of Sonoma County’s legendary craft brew scene, the third annual IPA 10K and Beer Mile Invitational is a true celebration of running and beer. The race kicks off with a start line beer or cider toast, before runners embark on a scenic 6.2 mile loop course through the heart of beer country. At the finish, runners and their guests are treated to the Beer Mile Invitational and BrewFest featuring beer tastings and live music. 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 world will compete for cash and prizes after a preliminary round pitting brewery teams competing for the coveted beer mile shoe trophy. The post-race BeerFest features Sonoma County’s fine breweries, bands, and food.
