Title: Marple Beer Run [Saturday 11 August 2018]
Post by: admin on July 30, 2018, 06:17:32 AM
Marple Beer Run returns on Saturday August 11th 2018!

After a brilliant first year there are now records to be broken, and this year (hopefully) almost 200 people will be heading off from Marple Rec on Oldknow Road to the Fox Inn pub, on a challenging 4km trail-run, with each hoping to become our new Champion! After every kilometre along the way, there’s an optional beer-stop, where participants can stop to drink a pint of delicious craft beer (this year supplied by 3 different local breweries!) – or a gin and tonic option is available. The finish line is the Fox Inn, where a nice cool beer is included in the entry fee, along with a buffet of food and hopefully some live music. The challenge is to complete the 4km run and drink 3 pints along the way (and the winner will get a prize!), but it’s mainly an excuse to have fun, get out into the countryside, do some exercise, and, of course, drink beer. Oh, and make money for charity – at least £10 per participant goes to local charities, but more if we get more people.

*the only change from last years epic run is that to win the top prize, you’ll have to successfully complete the beer run (but a smaller prize will be awarded to our fastest G&T’er too)

Entries are now open! (
