Produced by the Asheville Radio Group and Kick It Event Management, the Race to the Taps running series is no pub crawl. It features six, brand new 4-mile, chip timed road races. Each course is designed with varying degrees of difficulty appropriate for both the seasoned runner as well as the casual runner/walker. Strollers and pets will not be allowed.
The Pisgah Brewing Company race will start and end in the outdoor area at Pisgah Brewing and features a rolling course highlighting the Swannanoa/Black Mountain neighborhoods surrounding the brewery.
All runners will receive a Race to the Taps can koozie as well as a cotton race t-shirt and a beer pour after the race (must be at least 21 years old). Additional beer will be available for purchase.
Runners and spectators will enjoy a post-race festival at the finish of this event with music, food trucks, and of course, beer from Pisgah Brewing Company available for purchase. Each runner receives a complimentary pour at the end of the race as well.
In keeping with the theme of the series, craft beer centric prizes will be awarded tothe top 3 male & female finishers in each age category. Unique prizes will also be awarded for overrall 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male & female runners as well as the top male and female in the Masters (40 & over) and Grandmasters Division (50 & over).

In addition to the timed awards, we will also award a "King & Queen of the Taps" at each race for the "most spirit" based on attire and enthusiasm and the M.O.P (Middle of the Pack) award for the runner with the middle time of all runners.
