Race for your weight in beer


Some races are worth the price of admissions just for the post-race beer. The Avery Brewing Co Four of the Fourth could also be worth your weight in beer.

Everyone who finishes the 4K run/walk gets the Boulder brewer’s beer along with breakfast burritos. The overall male and female winners also get to go home with their weight equivalent in beer.

Prizes also include a case of Avery beer for age group winners, and 2nd and 3rd place age group winners receive two six-packs of Avery beer.

This isn’t the first time a race has awarded a weight-based beer prize. This summer, the Calgary Marathon offered this award for its 50th anniversary, and the winner came home with 120 bottles of beer.

Avery, which has a 21st anniversary celebration later this summer, has long been a supporter of earning your beer with sweat. They have also hosted bike rides that start and end at their Tap Room.
