The Beer mile relay (run) will be held at Virginia's Blue Ridge Go Cross Race with Deschutes Brewery at Fallon Park on Saturday, September 18th at 11:45 am.  There will be four laps, each lap is ~1/4 mile. Your team can have a minimum of two, and a maximum of four participants.

Cyclocross is an awesome spectator sport and we want to expose the Roanoke outdoor tribe to this amazing race. Immediately following the beer relay will be the elite men's and women's cyclcross races with top riders from all over the world.  Food trucks, ice cream, multiple beer gardens and viewing platforms, bike giveaways, contests with Deschutes, vendors and more will be open until 5:00pm that day, so stay and have some fun!

Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams and one for the team with the best costumes. This year's Go Cross race is BLUE GRASS themed!

Race briefing will take place at 11:30 am behind the beer tent & is mandatory (with ID) for all runners.

The cost of the race is only $25 PER TEAM if you register by 9/17/21 at midnight and $30 PER TEAM onsite registration (10:00am-11:30am race day). A minimum of two racers are required per team, and a maximum of four. Four beers are included in the $25 fee, so the race is essentially free ($6/beer onsite).

This race will be held in the in-field of the course. Meet next to the Deschutes wooden bar. The race will consist of 4 laps. To make this event more fun and a team effort, participants will ALTERNATE on each lap (if less than four).
