The Beer Run is back this year

Due to popular demand the Beer Run spearheaded by Lapu-Lapu City Councilor Harry Don Radaza returns, this time, with a different timeslot.

Instead of holding it at midnight just like during its first undertaking in 2012, the fun run will be held at sunset thus the event name – Sundown Beer Run and will be happening on April 26 as one of the activities for the Kadaugan sa Mactan festival.

Despite its success when it was held the first time, Radaza said they decided not to hold the fun run last year because they could not find a solution to some of the problems that cropped up such as the traffic and the crowd who were there for the street party, another activity for the Kadaugan.

Many, however, want it back so Radaza brought it back and this time with a new time slot so as not to interfere with the other activities.

This could be the first beer run in Asia as most event of this kind is held in the US and Europe, said Radaza.

Participants will assemble at the Lapu-Lapu City Hall where the run will start and end. Assembly time will be at 4 p.m. and the run will start at 5 p.m.

The event will have two distances—the 6K and the 3K.

Registration fee is pegged at P250 that entitles the racer to a race bib, pulutan and drinks. One has to be 18 years old and above to be able to register. The first 500 people to register will get exclusive beer run shirts.

To add spice to the event, pulutan stations are added to the beer stations. An obstacle course is set up at the end of the run which participants need to crawl through to get to the finish line wherein hard liquor awaits as well as beer coupons.

One of the participants will get to be honored as the “Drunken Master” while a group of friends can also aim for the “Team Tagay” award which comes with five cases of beer.

The team must at least have four members and while running, they can pass around a glass or a bottle of beer among themselves.

Those interested in trying out this fun event can register at Runner outlets in Ayala or Parkmall or at the Lapu-Lapu City Hall.
