Famous Canadian Beer Run

Drinking and running event coming to Ontario Place

There's no better way to celebrate crushing a run than by downing some nice, cold craft beer. And that's exactly what you can do after you complete the first ever Famous Canadian Beer Run & Festival.

This event, happening at Ontario Place on Sunday, September 18, is pairing a craft beer festival with a casual 5K run. And if this fusion festival sounds a lot like the RunTOBeer concept, you wouldn't be wrong. The popular running group is partnering with the Famous Canadian Beer Run & Festival and will be holding a tune-up session so you can beef up your running and drinking skills.

The short, lakeside route will take you through Ontario Place and once you cross the finish line, you can make your way over to the festival, which will include craft brewers such as High Park Brewery, Great Lakes Brewery, Beau's and Sawdust City Brewing.

And if you're looking to relax, you can check out the in/FUTURE festival, which will also be happening on race day. By participating in the run, you gain access to the multi-disciplinary arts extravaganza.

The registration fee is currently sitting at $65, but it'll go up on August 16.
