Bottoms Up!

Give your new year’s fitness routine a little kick in the ass with Saturday’s gut-busting Tap ’N’ Run. Relax, Prefontaine: This isn’t a race so much as an excuse to don a crazy costume and leisurely jog among the four beer-chugging stations set up along the route. Form a themed team, or strap on the sparkle hot pants for a solo run: The important thing is to have fun while doing it. Awards will be given in flippant categories like best ’stache and best belcher. The Tap ’N’ Run 4K race begins at 2 p.m. Saturday. The starting and finishing lines are located at SW Third Avenue and SW Second Street in Fort Lauderdale. Spectators can line up along Riverwalk South and North or near the starting line. An afterparty will be held at America’s Backyard, located at 100 SW Third Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. The cost to participate is $52, and registration closes at midnight Thursday. You must be 21 or older. Call 866-611-2526, or visit tapnrun.com.
