KVSPUBLOGOThe KVS Pub Beer Run Overview:
Penticton, BC, June 2nd, 2018

It is important to highlight that 100% of the net proceeds of this Series are donated to a not for profit society that supports local youth  – The  Youth Outdoor Recreation Society. (Y.O.R.S) provides affordable programs for mainstream and at-risk youth in the Okanagan to participate in outdoor recreation, education and leadership activities.  Community Support is very important to our company, we believe strongly that giving back to the community creates more opportunity and success for everyone, and where better to start then by exposing our kids to all the things we cherish about this valley.  There is no better classroom than the great outdoors.

Start and Finish

Shuttle buses will pick up from the SOEC starting at 9:30am.  Participants will be given their shuttle departure time when registration closes May 28th.

Race Course

This is a beautiful, gentle 10 km course showing off some of the best vistas in the South Okanagan. The flat or gentle downhill route is easily managed by running or walking.

The start line is right inside a genuine Hops Farm, from there scenery just gets better as you come along clay banks above the lake and into Penticton’s downtown.  After a few brewery samples and a couple food/water pit stops you’ll travel along the waterfront, past the historic paddle wheeler and down the channel waterway. A couple blocks off the channel runners will visit the last brewery and cross the finish line to celebrate with everyone in the garden patio of the Kettle Valley Station Pub located at the Penticton Ramada Inn and Courtyard.  The finish line is located right across the street from the morning shuttle pick up location.

Brewery Overview

The Beer Run will include tastings from the Cannery Brewery, Bad Tattoo, Tin Whistle, Barley Mill and Highway 97.  Tin Whistle Brewery will be set up at the start line for your first taste of the Penticton Micro-brew scene, you will run to Cannery Brewery, then past Hoodoo Adventure Company just across the Street where you will find Barley Mill Brewery.  From there you will head to Bad Tattoo and then down the lakeshore and Channel Parkway to the all new Highway 97 Brewery before finishing with live music, more beer and great eats at the Kettle Valley Station Pub Courtyard.   What a way to spend the day!
