On your mark, get set, DRINK! 

Join us for the 5th Annual Magic Hat Hot Trot, brought to you by Magic Hat and General Horseplay. The ONLY event during Brewfest where drinking and running are encouraged! The scenic downtown course starts at the Southernmost Beach Cafe, takes you down Duval St to the only bar open early enough to curb your morning cravings- General Horseplay! You'll be invited to have a cold Magic Hat (6 oz) at General Horseplay, then race back to the Southernmost Beach Cafe to have one more cold Magic Hat before crossing the finish line. Medals to all finishers and awards to the top 10 overall finishers. Last course record stands at 12 minutes 45 seconds (we think, there were a few Magic Hats had since then)...can you be the one to beat it? 

Lastly- what would a Key West race be without a costume contest? Magic Hat is our beer of choice, so don your most festive hat to be eligible for our "Most Magical Hat" prizes!

Our 2018 event will support the Police Explorers program. Give these guys a shout out along the route!
