The Beer City Half runs on! Join us on the morning of the Beer City Festival in Santa Rosa at A Place to Play for a beautiful run around Santa Rosa Creek. The Beer City Half Marathon includes a half marathon, 10k, and 5k distances. The Beer Stroll is a 1-mile walk around A Place to Play. The post-race celebration will whet your appetite for the Festival which takes place in downtown Santa Rosa in the afternoon and introduces you to some of the friends we have made putting together the Beer City Festival. This means you can look forward to a taste of local, regional, and international brews, food trucks, and music.
Every racer receives a special Key to Beer City shirt, a custom 7oz Beer City tasting glass, bib, chip time, and race photo. Click here to see more Frequently Asked Questions!
