We were lucky to have a mild winter day with perfect running conditions! Our routes took us around Kanata's business and tech sector which kept us to sidewalks for our route. For this sesson, we offered 3/5/10KM options which took participants in either a loop or a there + back format. See routes below powered off Strava:
Participants were welcomed to either a 10 or 16oz pour of whatever beer on tap their hearts desired. The staff @ Calabogie Brewing recognized that although everyone was there to enjoy a post run beer, that a full 16oz pint may not work for everyone so they offered a smaller portion size option for those interested. See beer list below for what was on tap that day and enjoyed by our runners. I personally enjoyed the Bleep Bloop IPA and saw lots of Brown Cow Nitro Stouts in the crowd. Tall cans were available for purchase as a take home which was a popular line throughout the event. We also always have participants who are there for the run and the community and do not wish to drink beer after their run so the bar offered alcohol free options (pop and water) for those guests, although the plan is to provide possibly kombucha down the road once the location has officially opened.
