The Marple Beer Run returns on Saturday (August 11) for the second year. The charity run will see participants tackle a four-kilometer trail which includes three optional craft beer pint-stops, or gin and tonic stops if beer isn’t your thing, as well as a finish-line pint.

The race will begin at the Marple Recreation Ground on Oldknow Road and finish at the Fox Inn pub, where a cold beer will be waiting for finishers as well as a buffet and live music, all included in the entry fee.

Obviously, everyone who takes part in a race involving beer is a winner but in the spirit of healthy competition, the first person to complete the race, including all beer stops, will be awarded a prize (more beer).

Organisers said around 200 people have signed up so far, but there’s still chance to secure your place in the race. Entry costs £25 with at least £10 going to local charities, but the organisers have said they will donate a larger chunk if they get enough people to take part.

For more information or to sign up visit the Marpe Beer Run website.
