On Sunday, we teamed up with Downtown Kitchener Ribfest & Craft Beer Show for Run at Ribfest, and what a run it was!

When you think of a 5k race, you can expect some water stations on the course. We took that concept and made just one simple tweak: subtract the water, and add brews from some of our favourite Ontario craft breweries – Waterloo, Cowbell, Anderson, Trail’s End, and Bobcaygeon – into the cups. And Run at Ribfest was born.
In less-than-ideal weather, everyone was in a good mood with our 1k loop through Victoria Park and the craft beer each lap. Some runners crushed the 5k course, but most had a fun, social run.
Afterwards, runners kept dry in the festival’s VIP tent, which was included with the race package. Thank you for joining us for this first-time event!
