Each runner will get a commemorative beer glass from Exile Brewing Co, and a beer to fill it. If you're a runner who's not of age or don't care for a beer, no worries, we'll have options for you!

We'll hang out post-race, listen to music, play some games, eat great food, and have an awesome time...all leading up to awards and the THUNDERDOME that is the Stein Holding Contest!

Tell friends and family who aren't running to come and join us for mega fun times! Festivites, food, and beer - it's a can't miss!

Stein Holding Contest

First Run Then Stein Hold!

Are you signed up to race? Then you're signed up to participate, if you're tough enough, in the Run to Exile Stein Holding Contest! Hold a 1 liter stein full of beer perpendicular to your shoulder, for AS LONG AS YOU CAN! We'll be giving away a $100 Exile Brewing Gift Card plus a custom aluminum growler to the top male and female!

We will run the contest with as many heats as necessary to determine the winners! Start working those shoulders! It'll be a test of strength, endurance, and of course, figuring out who you'll share your beer with!

Meet the Girls

Ruthie

Distance: 10 KM (6.2 miles)
Start: Exile Brewing Co

The Ruthie 10KM course. Deceptively quick. She might even tell you it's "only a 10k." How hard could it be? Start along with the Beatnik runners, then split at Principal Park and continue on your loop back to Exile. Don't worry, there's beer at the end!

Beatnik Logo

Distance: 5 KM (3.1 miles)
Start: Exile Brewing Co

Race Map

These are the Beatniks. They normally hang out in Haight-Ashbury, but on June 16, they're going to take you on a quick 5KM loop. You'll get back to Exile, just with a bit more lactic acid than before you left.
