Event Details

Will Run for Beer!

Blind Enthusiasm Brewery, Beira at Ritchie Market, and EBGA are dabbling in adventures of athletics and beer! Participation Ribbons and Completion Medals just aren't that delicious so we're swapping it out for a unique cask conditioned beer!

On Sunday, September 3rd, 2017, this run or walk starts and ends at Beira in Ritchie Market (9570 76 Ave NW)

Distances are variable, starting with the "overachieving" 10 kilometre, "ambitious" 5k, or "straight to beer" no-k.

The cask by Blind Enthusiasm is to be tapped at 10AM, and available to all participants. Feeling hungry? Great, we're at Beira where they'll provide us a brunch menu! Your ticket includes the cask conditioned beer, but bring your change purse for nibbles and any other beverages.

ID is required for all patrons to ensure we're serving to the right people as Beira is an all ages venue.

Last year at this event, our beer-loving community raised $500 for the Terry Fox Foundation. We're hoping to do the same this year, if not more! All proceeds from EBGA's Will Run For Beer will be donated to the Terry Fox Foundation.

Straight to beer 0k: $30

Ambitious 5k: $35

Overachiever 10k: $40

Timing: non-chipped event

Start Times:

10km – 8:55AM

5km - 9:25AM

0km - 9:55AM

Note: start times are actually 5 minutes after but you need to be checked-in, and waivers signed prior to starting. If everyone shows up early we can be on time and get back for beer :)


Beginning and ending at Beira in Ritchie Market and utilizing Mill Creek Ravine. Exact route will be forwarded about a week before the event. The route will be manned for 90min from the actual start time of the 10k. If you feel that time is insufficient for you to complete 10k please consider the 5k.


Each participant of legal drinking age, upon completion of their k's receive a serving of a unique cask conditioned ale created by Blind Enthusiasm. Once the cask is tapped, it must be served!
