Whoever said that alcohol and fitness don’t mix obviously hasn’t heard of The Beer Run – an exhilarating 5km dirt road run, inflatable obstacle course and festival where beer and athletics go together like rock and roll, steak and ale, and cycling and pilates.
Taking place on Saturday, 20 May at Riversands Farm Village in Fourways, Johannesburg, the 5km run incorporates five awesome “dehydration station” checkpoints along the route for runners to quench their thirst with a delicious beer after every kilometre conquered. Drink, run, repeat!
Why beer? Because it’s tastes good, keeps you hydrated and makes the experience a lot more fun than just plain H2O.
Unlike your everyday fitness challenge, The Beer Run is for people of all ages, shapes and sizes; whether they’re built like Johnny Bravo or a little soft around the edges. You can walk, run, crawl and even go piggyback if your mates are kind enough to carry you across the finish line.
A full afternoon of festivities is also in store with music, games, beer pong, bucking bronco, giveaways, food trucks and of course more beer! Entrance to the festival area is also free for spectators.
To ensure the merriment continues and that beer cups stays full for the duration of the festival, all vendors on site will be accepting payments with Zapper.
Zapper is a mobile payment app that allows users to simply scan a safe and secure QR code each time they make a payment. Individuals simply download the app onto their smartphones, complete the registration and start zapping. It’s as simple as scan, pay, go, and unlike cash, it never runs out!
With Zapper, your phone becomes your best drinking buddy, because it gives you R25 off your first transaction, which can be used to get your next beer for free!
Representatives from Zapper will also be at The Beer Run doing activations and giving away free vouchers to make the day even better! Zapper is available for free download on the app stores of Windows, Apple and Android phones.
