Beer City Series takes you to great places in Northern California for great racing, beer, and more. Each race includes half-marathon, 10k, 5k distances as well as a themed-fun run/walk for you, your friends and family. The series point system allows you to score points for each and every race you run with the points champions receiving the Golden Growler Award.
You don't need to 'win' collect great schwag and awards, though. Each race has a custom Key to Beer City for starters. Collect them all on a custom SLAMMER lanyard, custom shirts, bibs, and pictures. And what's more, each Beer City introduces you to a new beer scene with a finishing Beer City Festival that includes great local craft brewers.
At each Beer City, you receive a comfy Beer City t-shirt, a unique Key to Beer City for each city, a custom bib, Beer City tasting glass, custom bib and free race photos. If you're a Slammer, you'll receive a custom lanyard to hold all your keys as well as pins you may earn along the way.
Podium trophies are given to the top 3 in each race by gender. Age group awards are given 3-deep in each race. Racing the whole Series puts you in contention for the Golden Growler Award.
Beer City takes you to places all over Northern California. Each place and each Beer City is unique because we introduce you to local brewers, food vendors, and artisans you might not meet otherwise. Great brewing is local, as you'll find in Beer City, and we go out of our way to give you a sense of the place we are gathering.
Often you'll find that a Beer City has a special wrinkle just for you. Maybe there is Hot Chocolate, Ice Cream, or Donuts. Or maybe there's a costume contest. Who knows?
Every Beer City Half is designed to be a great race and is brought to you by Scena Performance, a leader in endurance running. These courses are generally flat and a mix of road, bike path, and gravel or packed dirt fire road. These races are meant to be fun and challenging so that the race is as memorable as the after party. Visit each race to download the Athlete Guide which will give you the overview of the course, the terrain, the location of aid stations.
Each Beer City also has a fun run of just a few miles. And that's exactly what these are - FUN - for folks that aren't super-interested in racing. These are a little different in each event, ranging from the Jedi Run at Beer City West Sac, to the Beer Stroll, to Questicorn.
