Beech Mountain, NC — This weekend at Beech Mountain is sure to be the Event not to miss. As the bike park begins the Monster Energy Race Series, a celebration of great proportions settles in to the tiny mountain town. Friday kicks off the event with a concert featuring Acoustic Syndicate and Melissa Reaves. In addition to the Dual Slalom and Downhill bike races, festival goers can "burn calories while you drink at the Oskar Blues 5K Hash Run!"
What could be more fun? Combine your two fav sports—next to biking of course—running... and drinking. The 5K start time is 2:00 Saturday afternoon, July 20. Begin at the base of the slope where running/drinking participants will board the high-speed quad lift to the top of the mountain. Once there, the athletes will encounter a beer stop featuring one of Oskar Blues' finest brews. That's all there is to it! Run a little, have a beer, run a little more, have a little more. Enjoy Dale's Pale Ale, Mama's Lil' Yella Pills, and Old Chub Scottish Ale!
A VIP pre-tasting is available to the non-running public at the beer fest later that afternoon. Entry fee for the Oskar Blues 5K Hash Run is $40. Swag and prizes in various categories included in fee. You'll also earn entry to Friday's concert.
