Boulder Beer Chase


Hey Boulder- Get ready to chase your beer! The Boulder Beer Chase is happening on Saturday, June 20, 2020, and this is an event you will not want to miss. Enjoy running with your friends? Enjoy a nice craft brew? Now you can combine the two with this unique Beer Chase!

The Colorado Mountain region is well known for its amazing attributes and abundant recreational opportunities. While many know Boulder as the Happiest City in America, it may also be known as the ‘Hoppiest’ – with over 15+ craft breweries Boulder is a beer lover’s paradise. Can you imagine enjoying the mountain fresh air while running with friends and sipping local craft beer? The Boulder Beer Chase is for you!

The Boulder Beer Chase spans approximately 55 miles from Boulder to Fort Collins. Designed to be completed in one day, the Beer Chase consists of 12 legs of varying distances (3 – 6 miles per leg). Teams of all sizes- between 1 and 6 runners/walkers- are welcomed to participate. The Boulder Beer Chase is non-competitive and un-timed; many teams come out purely for the camaraderie and the festivities, other teams are in it to run super hard. The Boulder Beer Chase brings out all types of people: women and men, young and old, beer drinkers that occasionally run, beer drinkers that run a lot, and runners that drink a lot of beer! 

A lot of races have beer at the finish line, but this race offers beer samples throughout the entire course! Experience the amazing craft breweries of the Front Range, starting in Boulder at Boulder Beer Company and travelling through Niwot, Longmont, Berthoud, and Loveland, to finish in Fort Collins at Odell Brewing. Every exchange point is hosted by one of the participating craft breweries and has a party-like atmosphere. Each time runners exchange at a brewery, you have the option to enjoy a 3 – 4 oz sample of craft beer from the sponsoring brewery. Consumption is not required, and every team is required to have a designated driver (DD’s are not allowed to consume alcohol during the event). 

The Boulder Beer Chase is a truly unique experience – with the Beer Chase you can finally combine running with your friends with drinking the finest craft beers the region has to offer!
