Drink. Run. Repeat. Got your attention?
Then this event is for you!
You and your friends will take turns running a 5K loop at the Brier Patch Hunting property just north of Poplar Grove Plantation. Before each lap is run, you have the option to drink a 12-ounce beer for a 2 minutes deduction off your lap time. Run solo, with your best friend, or on a team of 3 or 4 to complete the 20K course. Beer option only available for those 21 and older.
We will be hosting this race at Brier Patch Hunting Club just north of Poplar Grove Plantation on US 17. Participants and spectators will get to enjoy the natural atmosphere of Southeastern Coastal NC. You must be 21 or older to participate in the beer portion of the race. You do not have to drink beer to participate, beer is simply another element to the race and is optional. Persons under 21 can participate with chocolate milk.
The race course is on Breyer Patch Hunting Club property just north of Poplar Grove Plantation. Trail shoes recommended. The course is a very natural wooded terrain surrounded by swamp. Footing is variable. Runners will run a loop and then an out and back. You should expect bugs during the race. We have sprayed and fogged the field but not the course itself. The race is called Copperhead due to running in the woods in August. There is a chance that you could see a snake. If you do, please stay away from it and alert us. There is also a walking bridge that you will have to cross. Take caution and go slow.
We recommend headware for the run in case of any flies chasing you
Tarps and Lawn Chairs
Small Canopy Tents are allowed
Trash Bags for your trash. We will have receptacles and dumpsters but we do not want to have to pick up your trash
Make sure you are checked in when you pick up your bib. If you pick up an entire team bib, you need to check in all members of your team.
