The inaugural IPA 10K and Beer Mile Invitational is a celebration of running and beer. Produced by Destination Races and hosted by The Barlow, this 2-day event promises not to disappoint!

Friday, April 14th starts with the marketplace expo in The Barlow Event Center. Runners will pick up their race packets, purchase merchandise, and visit The Barlow businesses.

Saturday, April 15th, starts on McKinley Street with a Crooked Goat Brewing sponsored start line beer toast, just before the runners embark on a scenic 6.2 mile loop course. At The Barlow finish line, runners and their guests are treated to the Beer Mile Invitational and Beer & Music Festival! The amazing Barlow beer sponsors are Woodfour Brewing and Crooked Goat Brewing! A special silicone beer glass with beer tickets, access to the festival and spectator passes to the Beer Mile, are all included in the entry fee!

The Beer Mile Invitational is a fast paced, suds filled running competition featuring a “chug zone” on each ¼ mile lap around a block of The Barlow. Professional Beer Mile runners from around the country will compete for cash and prizes after a preliminary round, putting brewery teams in competition for the coveted Beer Mile Shoe Trophy! The Beer & Music Festival, features Sonoma County’s fine breweries, bands, and food, and is open to the general public from 11:30am – 3:00pm.
