Plenty of races end with a beer tent at the finish line. But it’s hard to top running to an actual beer festival.

This weekend’s Bend Ale Run offers the experience of a half marathon or 10K that culminates at the Bend Ale Festival, which features 20 breweries.

The festival in central Oregon—home of the Bend Ale Trail—features a course that is part road race, part trail with views of  the Cascade Mountain Range.

After crossing the finish line, participants get a pint glass and four tokens to sample the 40 beers on tap. Deschutes BreweryFull Sail and more will be pouring.
