Toronto’s Beer-iest 5K

This ain’t no beer mile! At Toronto’s beer-iest 5-kilometre fun run the real party begins when you cross the finish line into the Craft Beer & Food Festival. Kick back with friends as you sample the finest Canadian craft brews, nosh on delicious food truck eats and enjoy live music all afternoon long. Join us for our third annual event on Saturday, September 15th, 2018 at Ontario Place.

Take in stunning views of the city and Lake Ontario as you take a tour of Ontario Place’s East and West Islands. This closed-to-traffic route is run on wide, paved paths and is mostly flat with a few short hills and a pedestrian bridge crossing. There is one water station on course. Cross the finish line and you’ll be bestowed with your very own Famous Canadian Beer Run stein, and two beers to get you started at the Craft Beer & Food Festival.

Do the course at your own pace! Walkers, runners and athletes/non-athletes of all abilities are welcome! This event is NOT timed.

Five wave start times are limited to 500 participants each, to ensure that there is plenty of room on the course for you to take in the scenery. Choose your preferred wave start time when you register.

Included with run registration: custom Famous Canadian Beer Run stein, soft-cotton race shirt, beer chips good for 2 beers or 4 four sample pours, race kit filled with sponsor goodies and entry into the post-run Festival featuring live music, vendors and more!

Run 5-kilometres and reward yourself with beer! Our Craft Beer & Food Festival is where the magic happens. Cross the finish line and enter the Festival, where craft beer vendors are waiting for you to stop by their booths! Enjoy your favourites or sample new brews as you and your friends relax in Muskoka chairs while listening to live music. Cider and vodka cocktails are also on offer, as well as delicious food from Toronto’s most sought-after food trucks. Peruse the other booths or just enjoy an afternoon of relaxation.
