Event Description

Set on Upward Brewing Company’s 120-acre mountain plot in the Catskill Mountains, the Beer Mountain Challenge is a trail run with two distance options for runners – 2 mile and 4 mile.  Appropriately dubbed, Beer Mountain peaks at 1850 feet and is covered in a network of trails up, down and across the mountain – all located on Upward Brewing’s property!

About the Race:
The 2-mile option is one loop with 515 feet of elevation gain, and the 4-mile option is 2 loops with 1,030 feet of elevation gain.  Courses are a mix of foot trails, gravel carriage path and grassy fields (there is about a 40-foot section of asphalt as well). 
Each registrant receives a performance t-shirt, a custom finisher medal and a free craft beer at Upward Brewing’s bar!
