General

Run for Beer 2017 is Singapore’s Hoppiest Run! The inaugural edition of this event celebrates friendship, bonding and active living through the common love for beer. It is the city’s largest beer-related running event held at Clarke Quay’s Fountain Square. It will bring runners through a breezy 3.2km route along the Singapore River, showcasing some of Singapore’s iconic landmarks such as the Raffles Landing Site, Boat Quay and Cavenagh Bridge. The route’s finish line will bring runners back to Clarke Quay where they will be ‘rewarded’ with beer and exclusive F&B discounts at various merchant partners.

Participants are also strongly encouraged to creatively dress up for the event as they stand to win attractive prizes across five fancy dress categories. A costume partner will also be providing discounts, further encouraging participants to bring colour and vibrancy to the event.

The Fountain Square will also feature a host of post-run activities that include live band performances, stage games and more.
