Run the IPA 10K and Watch the World's Best Beer Milers Throw Down
The IPA 10K & Beer Mile is a full-weekend celebration of craft beer and running held in Sebastopol, California. On Saturday, the IPA 10K starts with a beer and cider toast before taking runners on a scenic 6.2 mile loop course north of The Barlow. The IPA 5K starts 15 minutes after the second wave of the IPA 10K.
After finishing the race, each runner receives their finishers medal and mini-pint good for tastings at the Brewfest featuring the region's finest craft brews and ciders, bands and exhibitors. Just before noon the crowd gathers for the popular Beer Mile Invitational and Brewery Relay Challenge.
Many of the top beer milers in the world compete in this iconic Beer Mile event as they chug and run four laps around a block of The Barlow. Brewery teams of four then compete against each other for claim to the Growler Trophy in the highly entertaining Relay Challenge.
Not interested in running? You can still register for the Brewfest and enjoy 20+ of the best bay area breweries, food, music, and spectate the Beer Mile Invitational.
