London beer runners plan ‘ultra beer run’

Run 33 miles along the Thames followed by unlimited craft beer.


“Anyone fancy a 30+ mile ‘Ultra Beer Run’ weekender?”

That’s how the London Beer Runners posed the challenge that includes a two-day, 33-mile run along the Thames culminating in unlimited beer at the Rebellion Brewery. 

The group plans regular weekly multi-distance runs that finish at pubs and breweries across London.

But for the summer, they’re planning something epic.

The Ultra Beer Run starts off with an 18-mile day along the Thames path to Windsor. The next morning they will go out for another 15 miles to the Rebellion Brewery  and an unlimited supply of free beer.

The whole trip — which includes train ticket plus hotel — goes for £150 per person.

“We’ve got everything covered for what promises to be a brilliant weekend of great running and fantastic beer,” the event invite promises.

If that’s a little too ambitious for you, they also have upcoming 5K, 10K and half marathon distances which all feature beer at the end. You can find all events on their Eventbrite page.

You can find out more about the group on Facebook.
