1000 Participants - Upon registration participants will have to choose a wave and start time, each wave will have a maximum capacity of 125. Once a wave is at capacity it will be sold out! Whoop!
Race Kits can be picked up on Saturday October 19th at OCTOBER WEST BEER FEST located at 105 Schneider Rd. from 11am-6pm.
If you are unable to pick up your race kit on Saturday - you will be able to grab your bib/shirt 20mins before your wave leaves on Sunday Morning at your specified start line. BUT Expect Lineups and wait time. This choice is not recommended. LOL. You could miss your first beer and we don't want that!
We HIGHLY recommend coming to kit pick up on Saturday to avoid lines on race morning and missing your first beer due to wait times.
What is OCTOBER WEST BEER FEST?
October West Beer Fest is all about bringing friends together to celebrate Beer! 3 breweries, including Small Pony Barrel Works, Calabogie Brewing Company and Big Rig Brewery (all located in Kanata) who teamed up in 2018 and decided to call a bunch of buddy breweries to come pour some beers.
October West is located conveniently by public transit so it’s a breeze to come sample over a dozen local breweries, grab some great eats and drinks, let the dog play in the licensed off leash dog park, hang under huge festival tent and listen to some tunes. Perfect for the entire family! What else would be better on a Saturday!
Everyone MUST pick up their own race kit, we will be checking ID at all Kit Pick Ups. Cheers!
Our hands will be full of beer heading from Start Line to Finish line but send us an e-mail if you have a concern!
Each wave will have 3-6 Beer Bunnies who will pace the participants at each brewery and along the route.
All breweries will be showcasing their finest hand crafted beers and have its own unique atmosphere that will energize you for the next leg of the route. Live entertainment, fresh air, beer education, brewery tours, beer games and of course.....beer drinking!
This is in fact a GREAT question. As you know this an alcoholic event so we will not be shuttling anyone back to their cars. Our recommendation for the day is to have a friend or family member pick you up at the Finish and drop you off at the start OR bus, taxi, walk, bike, crawl to your closest and safest destination. You could even have a combination of all of them! Carpool! Thanks so much for understanding.
Please Note: This is NOT a race for Children, strollers and animals. They will not be allowed in the race. This fun run is for strictly adults 19+ only. Thank you.
