The Famous Canadian Beer Run Involves Beer, Live Entertainment and Running

Toronto is set to host the first-ever Famous Canadian Beer Run at Ontario Place this coming fall. With beer, food and live entertainment, the event gives amateur runners a whole new incentive to get moving.

The Famous Canadian Beer Run is set to take place on September 18th through Ontario Place's east and west islands. The 5K route will take runners along a lakeside route that provides stunning views of the city skyline. Following the run is a craft beer and food festival with samples from micro-breweries such as Beau's, Sawdust City Brewing and Great Lakes Brewery. There will also be food trucks and live entertainment for those with enough energy left to indulge in a post-run celebration.

The booze-fueled fun run demonstrates the growing demand for events that combine athletics with other forms of entertainment.
