TAP ‘N’ RUN 4K BEER RUN MAKES INAUGURAL TAP IN ORLANDO
A 4K Complete with Beer, Costumes, and Fun!
Outrageous costumes,beer chugging and foot racing will reign supreme as the Tap ‘N’ Run 4K makes its inaugural tap in Orlando on Saturday, December 15th at 5 p.m.
Tap ‘N’ Run 4K combines participants’ love of beer and running for a unique “one of a kind” run/walk race totaling 2.4 miles throughout Downtown Orlando and the Wall Street district. Participants are encouraged to dress in costumes and run with teams, friends and family of legal drinking age. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the local charity, Pet Rescue By Judy.
Operated by Louisville, KY-based JAM Active, Tap ‘N’ Run encourages participants to run, jog, walk, hop, skip or crawl to four different “chug stations” along the course. The “chug stations” will have participants chugging a four-ounce sample of beer before continuing along the race route. At the finish line, participants will receive a full beer and the chance to win one of many awards (including Best Mustache, Best Belcher, Most Original Team Concept, Hot Mess, among others) at the After Party.
“This will mark Tap ‘N’ Run’s first time in Orlando, and so far, the response has been strong,” said Matt Roberts, JAM Active Executive Director. “The allure of the event, some say, is the uniqueness of being able to drink mid-run. Other races have beer at the end, but Tap ‘N’ Run provides it right along the race route. It’s a ridiculously good time with friends, family, costumes, teams and of course, beer.”
In addition to being a part of a unique racing experience, all participants will receive a finisher’s medal that doubles as a bottle opener as well as a Tap ‘N’ Run t-shirt to commemorate the crazy day.
