If jogging isn't your favourite activity, you could trick yourself into having a good time with this festive beer-fuelled fun run. The Beer Run is a guided journey that takes you to five Melbourne breweries for five beers. The full circuit is expected to take two to three hours, depending on how long you spend at each brewery – and how fast you can run with a belly full of booze, of course!
For this special Christmas edition of the beloved boozy 5K event, runners will be donning their ugliest Christmas sweaters and following a route that will start from the award-winning Bodriggy Brewing Company before stopping over at the Mill, Carlton Brewhouse and Mountain Goat Brewery. Once you're done, join your fellow attendees at a joyous after-party held at Stomping Ground where post-exercise (and post-beer) endorphins will be running high.
Tickets include one beer in each brewery (that's 5 beers in total included, per person), and to commemorate your achievement, you'll receive a novelty bottle opener medal as well as an official Beer Run bib. Baubles, ugly sweaters, tinsel and fairy lights are encouraged, and there's even a prize for best dressed!
Tickets cost $60 per person. You can purchase them here.
