Beer City Half Series

2024 Season Various Cities in, CA 94611 US

How Scoring Works

Beer City is a series of races that take place in Northern California, in the East Bay, Sacramento, Santa Rosa, and San Jose. Each one is a celebration of regional brewing. Each one is also a kickass competition for competitive runners.

You earn points for each Beer City race you run. The more you race, the more points you earn. The more points you have, the more likely you are to win something.

The scoring goes like this:

  • The half marathons earn you 10% more points than the 5k and 10k which are weighted the same. 
  • The top 25 by gender earn extra points from 50 for 1st place to 25 for the 25th place runner.
  • The top 5 by age group earn extra points from 5 for 1st place to 1 for 5th.
  • Everyone earns at least 1 point for each race.

The leaderboard tracks all of this and we present overall, gender, and age group standings. The men's and women's champions earn The Golden Growler presented by Almanac Brewing. 2nd and 3rd place finishers receive special awards as well, including gift certificates to visit the Almanac Tasting Room.
