2016 Bend Beer Chase Finish Line
You provide feedback and we listen. This year we have only ONE FINISH LINE! You will finish the 50-mile relay at Crow’s Feet Commons. Once relay teams cross the finish line at Crows Feet Commons, their official time will be recorded and they can begin the un-timed Keg Leg, where the entire team runs together for the last Keg Leg visiting 6 breweries. At the final brewery, Crux Fermentation Project, you will have the choice to run back to Crow’s Feet Commons or take the complimentary shuttle back to join the finish line brewfest.
Crow’s Feet Commons is hosting our ONE AND ONLY finish line. Runners will receive their finishers medals and prizes here. You may pick them up before the Keg Leg, but we recommend waiting so you have less to carry. Drivers and Volunteers who run the Keg Leg with their team will be able to collect their medal once they finish the Keg Leg. Drivers and Volunteers will have the opportunity to purchase a finisher’s shirt for $15.
We expect teams to start finishing the Keg Leg around 3pm and the party will continue until 9pm. Each of our partner breweries will be represented with a keg of their featured beer present; Oregon Spirit Distillers will be set-up providing a specialty beer cocktail for you to try; we have partnered with food vendors to bring you a variety of delicious dinner options; we will have Central Oregon Sports Massage* offering free massages (tips appreciated!); AND Crow’s Feet Commons is arranging a block party around our finish line. Live music will start at 6pm! Great event for the whole family!
