And how much beer would add up to 160 pounds? About twenty six-packs, Howe calculates.
The real goal of the event is to make running approachable to the average person, which is one reason the race is only a 4K (that, and because its on July 4). Joggers and even walkers are encouraged, Howe says, and all participants get a T-shirt and food. The winners and runners-up in various age groups will also win smaller amounts of free beer.
The race begins at 9 a.m. sharp at the Avery Tap Room, 5757 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder; registration is $25. For more information, call 303-440-4324 or log on to www.averybrewing.com.
