What we're about

Inspired by the Fishtown Beer Runners (FBR) of Philadelphia and the Charleston Beer Runners (CBR), the Sin City Beer Runners (SCBR) seek to bring responsible running and drinking "in the interest of Science!"

We meet every Wednesday at 6:30pm for a 3-5 mi run that will start and end at a local bar/pub around the Las Vegas & Summerlin area and enjoy a drink, or two! We always conclude our runs with a spirited toast to DNA (David N. April) & the Spanish Professor (Manuel J Castillo-Garzon, MD, Professor of Medical Physiology, School of Medicine, at the University of Granada), the men who inspired this beer running movement and have taken the world by storm!

Who (from CBR):
Sin City Beer Runners is open to anyone over 21. New and seasoned runners are welcomed. Elite runners should remember this is primarily a social outing and should plan to do greater distances before meeting. The club is also open to walkers and yes, even non-drinkers.

Mission (from FBR):
The primary mission is to further the study of Professor Manuel J Castillo-Garzon's scientific research. The study said that beer and water have similar rehydration effects (under the conditions of his study) which compared a moderate amount of beer (660 ML) to the same amount of water.

Goals (FBR):

1) to encourage people to exercise by running (or walking)

2) to provide friendly camaraderie 3) to support and raise funds for non-profits organizations and charitable causes

4) to promote the responsible enjoyment of QUALITY beer

5) to support local tavern owners and breweries

How it Works (FBR):
There are predetermined destinations (which will change weekly) about three to five miles. (sometimes longer sometimes shorter). The destination is a tavern, member’s house, or any other location where there is QUALITY beer.

As with a typical 5K, faster runners will lead, followed by slower paced runners, followed by walkers. There are no dues, and everyone is responsible for buying their own beer.

Responsible Consumption (from CBR):
The Sin City Beer Runners promote responsible beer consumption. Responsible consumption means consuming QUALITY beer and drinking within one’s limits. Please note, drinking beer while running will not be permitted. We also ask that you refrain from endangering your body by drinking any of the major macro beers.

A Note to New Runners:
Please come out! We are a social running group, that means there is no pressure to perform. So come run with us...just get to the bar, no questions asked!
