The Boulder Beer Chase is a six-person running & walking relay spanning approximately 55 miles over one amazing day. The relay starts at Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, and travels through Niwot, Longmont, Berthoud, and Loveland, to finish on the beautiful grounds of Odell Brewing in Fort Collins. Along the entire course, local breweries host exchange points where participants sample their amazing craft. The relay consists of 12 legs of varying distance (4-8 miles per leg). We welcome teams of all sizes, between 1 and 6 runners/walkers. On a 6-person team, each person runs 2 legs; on a 3-person team, each person runs 4 legs and so on.
Come join us on the Boulder Beer Chase for an opportunity to spend the day outdoors enjoying the views, amazing local craft brews, and getting in some exercise, all while being with friends!
ONE DAY RELAY – 55 MILES – 12 LEGS – 6 RUNNERS
BOULDER – FORT COLLINS, CO
June 20, 2020
The Colorado Mountain region has amazing attributes and recreational opportunities to explore. Boulder is known as the happiest city but we beg to differ. We think it is the ‘hoppiest’ city with over 15+ craft breweries. Enjoying the mountain fresh air while running with friends and sipping local craft beer from Boulder to Fort Collins creates one amazing experience: The Boulder Beer Chase.
We welcome teams of all sizes between 1 and 6 runners/walkers. On a 6-person team, each person runs 2 legs; on a 3-person team, each person runs 4 legs and so on.
Each time you exchange at a brewery, you have the option to enjoy a 3-4 oz sample of craft beer from the sponsoring brewery. Consumption is not required. Every team is required to have a designated driver and DD’s are not allowed to consume alcohol during the event.
