Run at Ribfest

A 5k fun run ... with beer ... at the Craft Beer Show!

If you ever looked at the Ribfest and Craft Beer Show and said, "the only thing that could make this better is running," then this is for you. This summer, Run Waterloo is bringing a new experience to your favourite summer festival. 

RUN at RIBFEST: Sunday July 22, 11:00 a.m. 


Run at Ribfest is a new event that pairs craft brews with running in the best possible way. We've put together a 1k loop through Victoria park that starts and ends in the licensed area, where you drink a beer sample each loop. On top of that, race entry comes with more beer tokens and everything in the Sunday Ribfest VIP package. 

This event is block priced to get on it. Are you going to #RunAtRibfest?

  • Each lap, after your beer, head out on our great Victoria Park 1 kilometre loop, completely closed to traffic.
  • This is a fun run, not a timed race. The good times are from the blast you're going to have, not the results you won't get. 19+ only.

  • Grab your Ribfest VIP package, which includes VIP wristband, souvenir glass, 5 more beer tokens, and more.
  • Early access to beer vendors after your run. (General admission starts at 12:00 p.m.)
