October 12 - October 18, 2020

Sponsored by:


This annual beer run is an opportunity to run a race and have an epic adventure on the date of your choosing between October 12 and October 18 in any location and take as long as you want -- but you must complete it within the October 12 - October 18 dates. You can upload your time via ultrasignup! This is a great way to stay motivated and have an adventure during the coronavirus pandemic, even if it's loops around your living room, neighborhood or on a treadmill. Please follow all local, state and social distancing guidelines to be safe and prevent the spread of the virus.


Farm Rescue is our charity of choice! 10% of your registration fee will go directly to Farm Rescue.


What do I get with my entry fee?

Both distances are $39 (10% off for 1:1 coaching & Fit Party clients). All participants get a t-shirt, Busch Light koozie, opportunity to win prizes, results on ultrasignup if desired (must submit time/verification, see below), and a donation to Farm Rescue. The $39 fee also goes toward creating the challenge/website work/logo fees/shirts/verification of times and results for the event.


Busch Light swag boxes will be awarded to the 1st place male and female finishers for both the 5k and 10k!  

Two more swag boxes will be awarded to the most fun/creative social media posts with your post run beer! You must tag @harrisonzfit on Instagram and/or Harrison Zacher Fitness on Facebook plus include the hashtags #2020BeerRun and #ForTheFarmers.

What is a Virtual Run?

It is a race you do on your own but in conjunction with other runners all over the country! It's the perfect way to safely race during the coronavirus pandemic. Sometimes we need a little extra motivation to push ourselves and this beer run is here to help you! Run virtually with people from all over the country between October 12 - October 18!


​How Does it Work? 

1. Register on ultrasignup by October 2nd and choose a distance: 5k or 10k. Shirts and koozies will be sent out 10 days prior to the event.

2. Pick a date and decide where you will be safely running / walking: You don't need to choose a date to run before you register. You will just need to run between October 12 and October 18. You can run indoors, outdoors, on road, trail, it's up to you! Please follow all CDC and local COVID19 guidelines). Dates must be within October 12, 2020 - October 18, 2020 and for an official time you need to submit your time by the end of the day on October 18. To submit a time scroll down to "HOW TO SUBMIT A TIME"

3. Run or walk your virtual "race", drink your beer or beverage of choice, and if desired you can record the time.

4. (Optional) Submit your time and provide verification: You will submit your final time, distance and verification for your run via ultrasignup.

Verification requires a public link to your Strava (download the app) results or other run record site like Garmin, Coros, Suunto, etc.


HOW TO SUBMIT A TIME / VERIFICATION for official results

It's really easy! See #4 above for what to use for verification.
