Burn Calories WHILE You Drink at the Oskar Blues 5K Hash Run
Want to enjoy a few beers without feeling guilty about calories? If so, sign up for the inaugural Oskar Blues 5K Hash Run during Bikes, Brews ‘n’ Views weekend at Beech Mountain Resort.
Hash runs combine one popular sport – running – with another popular sport – drinking. The Oskar Blues 5K debuts at 2:00 p.m. onSaturday, July 20.
The run ‘commences’ at the base of the ski slopes where runners board the resort’s high-speed quad lift for a ride to the top. At that point, the athletes must be prepared to face a beer stop featuring one of Oskar Blues’ finest.
Fully refreshed, runners then begin to work their way down the slopes and adjacent terrain, at which point they encounter more beer stops. Wow, you’re burning calories and enjoying Dales Pale Ale, Mama’s Lil’ Yella Pilsner and Old Chub Scottish Ale!
Best of all, there’s an added bonus for reaching the finish line: a VIP pre-tasting of beers available to the general public later that afternoon at the beer fest.
Entry fee for the Oskar Blues 5K Hash Run is $40. That fee includes: the 5K, beers along the way, prizes in various categories, and a spiffy Oskar Blues/Beech Mountain Resort mason jar.
But wait, there’s more! Your fee also provides admission to Friday evening’s concert featuring Acoustic Syndicate and Melissa Reaves. On Saturday, runners also receive entrance into the beer fest from 3-7 p.m., free parking and access to shuttles.
