IVS Summerfest & Beer Mile
This year's event will be held on August 19th, 2017 starting at 3:00 pm. The location remains the same as previous years at the Exposition Gardens in Peoria, IL (1601 W. Northmoor Rd)
Registration is now available online through getmeregistered.com. The cost is $10 for current IVS members and $15 for non-members.
You don't have to run the race to register. Come on out and have some fun with your running friends!
There is no requirement that you drink beer in order to run the mile. However, if you do wish to drink then you must provide four beers or drinks of your choice for your run.
The Beer Mile will be run in heats depending on the number of participants in order to minimize the crowding at the tables in the transition zone. Although this will be a timed event, it is non-competitive and no award will be presented.
IVS will provide hot dogs, chips, soda, water and (of course) beer for the cookout after the run. We can always use a few volunteers for grilling and setup/cleanup. Please contact Jerry Kolb to volunteer, or for any other questions related to the event.
Feel free to bring a game (bags, washers, etc.) as we will have the beer garden all to ourselves.
Any proceeds will go toward the IVS Half Marathon (although we are really just doing this for the hell of it!).
