Tap 'n Run Beer Run Returns to Fort Lauderdale This Weekend

It's a constant struggle to have a balanced lifestyle that includes equal amounts of exercise and indulgence.

But what if you could take care of both at the same time?

Well, the Tap 'n Run Beer Run in downtown Fort Lauderdale provides just that this Saturday, December 7. It's a 4k run that includes beer chug stations instead of the usual Gatorade stops.

That's right. At three points in the race, you'll be served a tasty five ounce beer to fuel you with the necessary carbs to complete your mission.

Your reward for a job well done? A finisher's medal that doubles as a beer opener and entrance to an after party at America's Backyard, complete with awards ceremony. Don't think you can win the race? Well, the awards include best burper, best 'stache, drunkest duo, and shortest shorts.

Runners are encouraged to dress in costume, so get the lederhosen and the giant beer hat out of storage and join the fun. The run starts at 2 p.m. on Saturday just outside America's Backyard.

Package pickup will take place on Friday, December 6th from 3 - 7pm at Runner's Depot in Davie (2233 S University Drive) and Saturday from 10 am- 2 pm outside of America's Backyard. Plan to get to the race early to check in and show ID.

The Tap 'n Run is open to runners, walkers, and crawlers 21 and over (obviously). Registration is $59 and includes a Tap 'n Run t-shirt, race entry, beer stations, finisher's medal, and entrance to the after party. Register at tapnrun.com/fortlauderdale.
